Bengaluru: Yeddyurappa to Represent BJP at Abdul Kalam’s Final Rites at Rameswaram

Bengaluru: Surprise was expressed in the BJP circles here when the news came that former chief minister and party’s national vice president B S Yeddyurappa had been deputed to represent the party at the final rites of former president A P J Abdul Kalam at Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu on July 30.

Yeddyurappa, as soon as receiving instructions from national president Amit Shah, left for Rameswaram on Wednesday.

Although there are cabinet rank ministers from the state in the Union government, the choice of Yeddyurappa is seen as a sign of his growing importance and clout.

But some sources said that since BSY was annoyed over being ignored during the recent visit of the party leaders to the homes of farmers who had committed suicide, this is being seen as a step to keep him in good humour, temporarily though.
