BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Jul 31: Putting an end to the high drama that the state has been witnessing for the last few days, Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa on Sunday, Jul 31 submitted his resignation officially.

After a highly-politicised drama (foot-march) to the Raj Bhavan along with other MLAs, Yeddyurappa stepped down after tabling the resignation letter to the governor HR Bhardwaj.

Earlier Yeddyurappa put forward his conditions on the BJP to choose his successor before he (Yeddyurappa) leaves the office but the party dismissed his demand. BJP has so far claimed that the party will name the new CM after Yeddyurappa resigns.

Yeddyurappa, who escaped several times, has finally been bruised by the latest Lokayukta report on illegal mining in the state. The report by Santosh Hegde claimed that Yeddyurappa and his family had bagged a whopping bribe of Rs 20 crore from a mining company.

The Lokayukta report also named mining barons - the Reddy brothers along with some other top bureaucrats of Karnataka.
