Former Karnataka Chief Minister and Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP) president B S Yeddyurappa today said the fate of the ruling BJP government will be decided on January 4 when KJP Working Committee meets.

Talking to reporters here, he said the legislators who were identified with KJP would take a final decision on tendering their resignation to the ruling party.

"If majority of my followers quit then this government is reduced to minority. Now itself it is a BJP-KJP coalition functioning," he said.

Mr Yeddyurappa said, "one thing is certain that there will be a political change in the state after January 14. There is no doubt about it, wait for some time, everything will be made known after January 14." Alleging that Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar lacked knowledge about finance, he said, "Let the government come out with white paper on state's finance position. The Treasury is becoming empty. Though the budget size was more than Rs One lakh crore actual implementation was far less due to paucity of funds.

"When such is the situation why should we boast ourselves as we have presented Rs one lakh crore budget when the money is not available."
