Battle of Superstars LUXURY PROTEST
Former Karnataka chief minister and BJP leader B.S. Yeddyurappa took flak for his indulgent three-day, all-night dharna, which started on June 14 in Bengaluru, to protest the failures of the JD(S)-Congress coalition government. At the deluxe protest venue, Yeddyurappa had a brand new mattress to rest on in a room set up with coolers. A dining hall and makeshift toilets had been set up and a private caterer supplied hot beverages 24x7. Yeddyurappa declined to comment, but his acolytes and hangers-on blamed it on the sultry weather.
