BJP's Yeddyurappa plays cricket with legislators at Bengaluru hotel
Bengaluru : While the focus shifted to Supreme Court, which is hearing pleas of 15 Karnataka MLAs against the alleged delay by the Speaker in accepting their resignations. The state BJP president BS Yeddyurappa was seen in a relaxed mood at a resort outside the city.
Mr. Yedyurappa was seen in a hectic meeting schedule as the wobbly coalition government headed by Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy is on the brink of collapse.
On Tuesday evening, BJP state media cell released a picture of Yeddyurappa playing cricket with party MLAs Renukacharya and SR Vishwanath, among others.
Yeddyurappa can be seen batting in the picture.
After over a week long heightened political activity in the city, it was relatively a calm on Tuesday with the focus shifting to the Supreme Court.
The top court will pronounce its order Wednesday morning on the pleas of 15 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs seeking direction for Speaker Ramesh Kumar to accept their resignations from the Assembly.
In a bid to keep their flock together ahead of the floor test, the Congress, BJP and JD(S) have shifted their MLAs to resorts.
The Congress Tuesday shifted its MLAs from a hotel in the city to a resort on the outskirts, amid fears that some more legislators may resign.
