Pioneer of Opposition in the Assembly BS Yeddyurappa has rejected the cabin allocated to him by JD(S)- Congress government, asking for rather the cottage he used to possess as the main clergyman until 2011.
A round put out by the state government on June 30 demonstrates that the senior BJP pioneer was given lodge no.4 on Race Course Road. He, in any case, has asked for his previous address at home no.2.
Baffled that he was not allocated his preferred home, Yeddyurappa communicated his disappointment saying, “Since the CM has not obliged my demand, I won’t take up the house given to me by the administration. I will remain at my own living arrangement in Dollars Colony when I visit Bengaluru.”
Yeddyurappa had demanded getting his ‘fortunate’ cottage no.2 as he had made a few ‘vaastu-protestation’ changes to the structure while living there. Sources say Yeddyurappa trusts that it was vaastu of the house that helped him turn into the CM twice previously.
Sources near Yeddyurappa likewise said the choice to allocate lodge no.4 to the previous CM may have been impacted by JD(S) supremo and ex-head administrator HD Deve Gowda. They charge that Gowda, a firm devotee to crystal gazing and vaastu, dreaded Yeddyurappa’s arrival as CM on the off chance that he was dispensed home no.2. Gowda has prompted his child and Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy to oblige the BJP pioneer, sources asserted.
After Yeddyurappa’s leave, the cabin, Race View Cottage, was involved by previous condition serve B Ramnath Rai and has now been designated to Tourism Minister Sa Ra Mahesh.
As Leader of Opposition, Yeddyurappa appreciates Cabinet rank and is qualified for an administration cottage.
