Ex-CM Yeddyurappa now a backbencher in state assembly

Bangalore, Dec 6: Ex-Chief Minister of Karnataka, B S Yeddyurappa, who occupied the first seat in the front row of the Karnataka legislative assembly during his stint as Chief Minister, was moved to the last bench on Monday (Dec 5).

In the assembly, the Chief Minister sits in the first chair of the front row in the treasury benches, followed by his ministers. As the former CM of Karnataka, he should have got a seat after present CM Sadananda Gowda. Sources said that six-time MLA Yeddyurappa requested the state legislative assembly authority to provide seat in last row, as it was closer to the door and provides more space.

In the state assembly, he was still the most sought after leader by ruling party MLAs. Many touched his feet, while some others shook hands with him. When asked about his jail stint, he said, "It was a good experience. I read, wrote my diary. What else could I do? There was so much time.''

However, throughout the discussion in state assembly, Yeddyurappa sat quietly. Post lunch session also, he was seen silent without involving in any discussion till the end.
