Possibilities of Yeddyurappa's sudden disappearance from his Race course residence and then appearing in the Lokayukta court to surrender himself can be linked to his firm belief in astrology raising one's curiosity if he consulted his astrologer to find a good omen to make his appearance before the Lokayukta court and then head towards the jail.
It is not a hidden fact that the corruption hit ex-CM was buying time to delay his resignation from the post of chief minister and after consulting his astrologer, whose words he (BSY ) believed that his political career would see a favourable period after Jul 30 stepped from down from his post of Chief Minister on Jul 31, 2011.
When Yeddyurappa faced two trust votes on Oct 11, 2010 in the Assembly, police a day earlier found a handful of vermilion, bangles, turmeric, an egg, a lemon pierced with four nails, a doll made of dough and a copper bowl outside in the lawns at the Vidhana Soudha building.
"Blackmagic" cried Yeddyurappa after he saw the miscellaneous articles. His astrologer however had a theory behind this which he believed was done by his opponents.
“It"s his opponents, amma," said Bhanu Prakash Sharma, Yeddyurappa's family priest and astrologer.
“It"s clear that some kutumba virodhi has done this. Parivarada holege, party holege (within the family, within the party). Sometimes people in your own family can act against you," said Sharma.
The god fearing Yeddyurappa had also conducted several rituals to ward off evil eye.
“The CM is of the Vruschika rashi (zodiac sign Scorpio) and rahu is entering this rashi, which isn"t very good for him. I advised him to do the Sahasra Chandika yagna and offer one lakh modakas (a rice-based sweet) to Ganapati," his astologer had said after Yeddyurappa seemed to ceaselessly whirl around in a series of misfortunes that kept following him.
Yeddyurappa submitted himself quietly to the arrest warrant at the Karnataka Lokayukta Court on Oct 15, perhaps the most unexpected out of him and will be lodged at the Parappana Agarahara Central Jail till Oct 22.
Arrest warrant was issued against Yeddyurappa after his name was indicted in the land denotification scam in the Karnataka Lokayukta report.
