'Yeddyurappa faction is adopting pressure tactics'

Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda's camp today hit back saying two Ministers identified with the group would resign this afternoon expressing strong opposition to the change for leadership.

Asnotikar said the Yeddyurappa faction is adopting "pressure tactics".

"Sadananda Gowda should not be dislodged at any cost. If such a situation arises (if Gowda had to step down), it's better to go for elections", he said.
