Yeddy 3rd CM from Shimoga not to complete tenure
Bangalore: B S Yeddyurappa, whom the BJP
forced to quit office on Sunday is the third chief minister from
Karnataka`s Shimoga district not to complete full term.
S Bangarappa and J H Patel are the two other leaders
who had incomplete terms in office.

minister in 1990, but had to quit after his party high command

as Prime Minister in 1997, dissolved the Assembly in 1999 -- a
few months ahead of its tenure in the wake of rebellion

coalition government was toppled by JDS in 2006, and H D
Kumaraswamy, who resigned in 2007 after his coalition partner
