New Delhi, Jan 24 (Agencies): Senior BJP leaders will meet President Pratibha Patil on Monday seeking the removal of Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj even as a defiant Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa brought his battle to the capital on Sunday accusing him of trying to fulfill his individual political ambitions.

On a day's visit, Yeddyurappa met senior leaders L K Advani and Arun Jaitley to chalk out a strategy to deal with the political situation arising out of Governor's sanction to prosecute him for his alleged involvement in land scams.

Party sources said Rajya Sabha opposition leader Arun Jaitley will lead the delegation of MPs to Rashtrapati Bhavan. Yeddyurappa's meeting with the top BJP leaders came a day after party chief Nitin Gadkari, who is currently visiting China, said that Yeddyurappa's decision of denotifying land in favour of his son was "immoral" and "not proper."

Asked about his reaction to Gadkari's remark, the chief minister said he would "discuss" the issue with Gadkari and added, "I don't want to comment on anything stated by our all India party president."

The strategy is to prolong the legal process against the chief minister to buy time while upping the ante against the Governor seeking his recall, party sources said. The Chief Minister said he would not file a case in High Court questioning the Governor's decision to give sanction for his prosecution.

"I am not going to approach the high court," said Yeddyurappa, who is learnt to have discussed the matter with legal luminaries in the national capital.

Claiming that he has not done "any mistake" in the land allotment issue, Yeddyurappa said the Governor's decision to sanction prosecution was to fulfill his "individual political ambitions."

Yeddyurappa alleged that even after the Governor's decision, the Raj Bhawan, when it was approached by his principal secretary to get a copy of the order, did not give it.

"I sent my principal secretary to Governor to get the order copy. He told him openly, tell your chief minister that I am not going to give a copy, and let him collect the copy from the court," the chief minister said.

Speaking to reporters on his arrival at Delhi airport in the morning, the Chief Minister alleged that the Governor was trying to throw BJP out of power and install a Congress government in the state. Slamming Bhardwaj, Yeddyurappa said, "This is not the first time he is doing something. As soon as he took over as the Governor...he is (acting like) a Congressman.

When it was pointed out that Chidambaram had criticised BJP for its attack on the Governor, he said, "I have great respect for Chidambaram. He may not be aware of the facts. I am trying to meet him and explain all these things."
