Joshi said that he had raised the issue of Yeddyurappa's homecoming with party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, who was in Belgaum on Thursday for a function, and added that the matter is before central leaders.
    
Yeddyurappa had earlier this month said that he has an ‘open mind about joining BJP and a clear picture on his homecoming might emerge in the next four to five days.
    
Soon after the Assembly polls in five states, senior BJP leaders from Karnataka had met party chief Rajnath Singh and urged him to start the process of bringing Yeddyurappa back into the outfit.
    
Yeddyurappa, who has supported Narendra Modi's candidature for prime ministership, had also written to NDA’s acting chairman Lal Krishna Advani to take KJP into its fold.
    
Yeddyurappa, who quit the position of Chief Minister in July 2011 over illegal mining bribery charges, walked out from BJP last year and launched KJP.
