Yeddyurappa plays cricket with legislators in Bengaluru

Though Karnataka political crisis turning tense awaiting for Supreme Court verdict and also Thursday’s trust vote in the Assembly,  the state BJP President BS Yeddyurappa was seen in a relaxed mood playing cricket with party legislators who are camped at a resort on the outskirts of the city.

Yeddyurappa, who had been busy in hectic meetings with senior party colleagues and legislators strategising as the wobbly coalition government headed by Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy is on the brink of collapse, yesterday he  spent most part of the day at a resort near Yelahanka.

Later in the day, BJPs state unit media cell released a photo of Yeddyurappa playing cricket with party MLAs Renukacharya and SR Vishwanath, among others. He was seen batting.

After over a week long heightened political activity in the city, it was relatively calm with the focus shifting to the Supreme Court. As many as 16 MLAs — 13 from the Congress and three from JD(S) — have resigned while two independent MLAs S Shankar and H Nagesh have withdrawn their support to the coalition government, keeping it on the edge.
