In the backdrop of an imminent vertical split in ruling BJP in Karnataka following the rebellion by former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, the party's central leadership has deputed an emissary to take stock of the situation and make a last-ditch effort to keep the party united.

BJP National Secretary Dharmendra Pradhan, who is also in charge of party affairs in the state, arrived here today and promptly began a meeting of the top party functionaries in the state and the meeting is expected to last the entire day.

BJP state unit President K S Eshwarappa, former Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda, Deputy Chief Minister R Ashok, Legislators and other leaders are huddled in the meeting.

Mr Pradhan will hold talks with ministers and party MPs in the evening and is expected to file a report to the central leadership on the present status of the party in the only state in South where it came to power in 2008.
