Following two private complaints filed by advocate Sirajin Basha, Yeddyurappa was supposed to appear in a special Lokayukta court on Wednesday. However, spokesperson for Yeddyurappa informed that the former CM failed to appear in the court on the scheduled date and time following some health concern.
Yeddyurappa reportedly had gone under an eye-operation and has been advised to take complete bed rest. He is also reportedly not allowed to come out from his residence following the same cause. Thus the court hearing has been adjourned till Jan 30.
The stories about Yeddyurappa's power ahead of Sankranti (Jan 15) came up as he reportedly had given Jan 15 as a deadline to his supporters to start a political storm state-wide creating more pressure on the BJP party to reinstate him as the Chief Minister.

Yeddyurappa is believed to have set Jan 15 as deadline as the day would mark the end of Sankranti and would be auspicious for him to start his political battle against the senior BJP leaders, possibly over his astrologers advice.
