BS Yeddyurappa
Bangalore, Aug 28: After former Karnataka Chief Minisnter BS Yeddyurappa was indicted in the Lokayukta report in the illegal mining scam, he was scheduled to appear before the Lok Ayukta special court on Saturday. He failed to do so citing hypertension, diabetes, and high fever. He will not have to appear in court on Monday after being granted an exemption.

Sources have claimed that the former CM has developed neurological problems and has been admitted to the Sagar Hospital on Saturday afternoon for further evaluation. Dr. Jagdeesh Chandra, general physician and a doctor at the Sagar Hospital commented, "It is difficult to say at this stage about the exact problem. He has been admitted to the hospital and has been advised on some tests. He is likely to be hospitalised for the next couple of days."

The court had issued summons based on a complaint filed by advocate Sirajin Basha over the alleged land denotification issue. The doctor further added, "We did a series of tests to ensure everything was fine with him. There are minor complaints but, based on the reports that we have, nothing seems to be alarming."

The Times Of India, has however quoted Yeddyurappa as saying that he complained of "being in a confused state of mind". He has apparently said that he has never suffered from temporary memory loss earlier. The article on the Times of India also quoted the doctors as saying, "It could be a nerological problemwhere a person goes blank but becomes normal within 24 hours."

CH Hanumantharaya, counsel for respondent Sirajin Basha, commented on this strange turn of events, "If it"s true, it has to be supported through proper documents." Yeddyurappa's counsel, Ravi B Naik commented, "They want to suck my (Yeddyurappa) blood. They're chasing him and it's politically motivated. They have a devil's urge in them. These things shouldn't happen."
