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.

Minister said he and would tender their resignation as they want to send a "message" to the party's central leadership against any move to replace Gowda.

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.

Asnotikar appealed to other Ministers supporting Gowda to also tender their resignations to express solidarity with the Chief Minister.
