"Ball is in the court of Rajnath Singh, our national president; state party has given its opinion - it has firmly urged the central party to avoid split in anti-Congress votes, we should unitedly go," he told reporters in Bangalore in response to a question about Yeddyurappa's return to BJP.
He said, "Our opinion has been conveyed to the party’s national president. He (Rajnath Singh) has said that after consulting all national leaders he will direct us in what way we should progress in this matter. We are waiting for his directions."
Stating that national leadership has agreed to welcome Yeddyurappa, senior state BJP leader Suresh Kumar said, "Our president Rajnath Singh will give the green signal on the correct date."
On being asked whether Yeddyurappa's return was imminent, he said, "I think it has been made clear number of times by our state president."
Earlier, BJP state general secretary CT Ravi said that the party aims to win twenty plus seats (out of 28) in the 2014 Parliamentary elections in the state.
BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi would be touring different parts of the state during January and February, he said, adding he was expected to visit Gulbarga, Hubli, Mysore, Belgaum, Dakshina Kannada/Udupi, Shimoga/Davangere.
"We have requested him to visit minimum eight places," Suresh Kumar said.
