“SM Krishna has decided to join BJP. We don’t know when for certain, we’ll fix that soon. But he is joining 100 per cent,” Yeddyurappa said.
Krishna who recently resigned from Congress after a five-decade association had on Sunday hit out at the party saying, “the party doesn’t need mass leaders these days but only managers who can handle a situation.”
Reportedly Krishna was miffed after having been sidelined in the party ever since he resigned as the external affairs minister in 2012. The party did not give him any big responsibility during the 2013 Assembly election too.
Krishna, who began his political career in 1962, has been an MLA, MLC, member of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, served as Union minister, Speaker, deputy chief minister, president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee,?chief minister and governor.
