Bad luck continues for Yeddyurappa

Bengaluru, May 19: BS Yeddyurappa s tenure as Karnataka chief minister eventually lasted only for two days.On Saturday, the BJP leader quit after failing to show the numbers. In an emotional speech, the BJP leader accused the Opposition of using "backdoor politics" to disrespect people s mandate. This is not the first time Yeddyurappa s had to quit. And it s not the first time the scales have tipped against him. Twice earlier he had been unable to complete his tenure as chief minister. It was yesterday twice more for the BJP s leader in Karnataka. After withdrawing support to the Dharam Singh government, JD(S) had formed a coalition government with the BJP on the condition of Kumaraswamy becoming the chief minister for half the term and a BJP leader for rest of the period. However, Kumaraswamy refused to hand over power to the BJP after being the chief minister for 20 months and the Yeddyurappa government collapsed after he was chief minister only for seven days.The second time, Yeddyurappa continued for a longer period, but was unable to complete his term. He was made the chief minister after the BJP came to power in May 2008 but had to step down in July 2011 following his indictment by the then Lokayukta N Santosh Hegde in an illegal mining case. This was the third time Yeddyurappa had become the chief minister of Karnataka. The Supreme Court had given the BJP just 24 hours to prove their majority on the floor of the house. That has not proved to be enough time for the saffron party to muster the required numbers. Yeddyurappa will have to vacate the chair once again , and this tenure will be even shorter than the seven days in 2007.
