The Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, Arun Jaitley, who returned on Sunday from Bangalore after persuading Mr. Yeddyurappa to step down, told journalists here that he, along with the former party President, Rajnath Singh, had completed ‘consultations' with the party legislators on choosing a new Chief Minister.
