To pray for his survival, BSY leaves for Tirupathi

July 26, 2011 20:27 IST

Ahead of the crucial Lokayukta report on illegal mining in Karnataka which will be submitted before the chief secretary on Wednesday morning, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has sought the intervention of the Gods.

He left on Tuesday evening for Tirupathi in Andhra Pradesh where he would seek divine blessings ahead of the report.

The CM has been under intense pressure after Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde's report, which indicted him and others for rampant corruption over illegal mining in Karnataka, got leaked a few days back.

The only Bharatiya Janata Party CM in a southern state may have to quit his chair amid mounting pressure if his name is mentioned in the report.

It seems Yeddyurappa has left for Tirupathi to pray for his survival and also that of his government, sources say.
