Yeddyurappa sees good omen in bird droppings

Yeddyurappa sees good omen in bird droppings

Good, bad and ugly

The dove released by the CM to inaugurate 32nd National Junior Volleyball Championship didn’t fly high in the air. Instead, scared by the crowd, the bird pooped on the sleeves of CM. Those familiar with Yeddyurappa’s temperament were expecting an outburst. But, much to everyone’s surprise, the CM was all smiles. “It is a good sign that the bird came back,” Yeddyurappa said while addressing the programme, thus hinting that he will win over the loyalty of the legislators in the dissidents’ camp. Not only that, he even termed bird’s poop as ‘prasada.’

However, Minister for Power K S Eshwarappa, who represents Shimoga and Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs Goolihatti Shekhar who has identified himself with Bellary Reddys are not the doves that could easily be won back.

Both were conspicuous by their absence from the function. The ministers were expected to take part as the State is hosting National Junior Volleyball Championship for the third time.

Bad omen

Meanwhile, the CM’s temple visiting spree continued on Monday also. Yeddyurappa, who came to City after Panchalinga Darshan at Talkad, went to Bangaramakki in North Karnataka to seek blessings of the lord Anjaneya, in the noon. It is said a priest had suggested the Chief Minister to perform a pooja in Bangaramakki to save his chair during the latest political crisis.

However, Yeddyurappa had to encounter a bad omen here as the bus in which BJP workers from the City were travelling to Bangaramakki met with an
accident in which one person was killed.
