    On Thursday while filing his nominations from Shikharipura, Yeddyurappa declared cumulative assets worth Rs 4.09 crore. In the year 2013, he had declared assets worth Rs 5.8 crore, while in 2014 when he contested the Lok Sabha elections, it stood at Rs 6.9 crore.

    As per his declaration both his moveable and immoveable assets have gone down over the past four years. However, there appears to be some confusion regarding his educational qualifications.

    In 2013, he said that he had a BA degree from Bangalore University. In 2014 he had said that his highest qualification was PUC from a government college in Mandya. This year he has maintained that he has a PUC degree from a college affiliated to the Mysore University.

    Yeddyurappa who is looking to return as the CM of Karnataka organised a grand road show before filing his nomination papers. Following this, he expressed confidence in the BJP returning to power and also said he himself would win by a margin of over 30,000 votes.
