Former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who is expected to quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on December 9, has found a new office for his recently formed Karnataka Janata Party (KJP), and it is one with a chequered political history. The new headquarters is a small house in Rannebennur Colony that has been the political office of almost all the major parties that have contested in the state Assembly elections. Till Yeddyurappa’s supporters converted it into the KJP office, it was the BJP’s Karnataka office. But the house was first occupied by the Congress, then the Janata Dal, and even former Chief Minister Ramakrishna Hegde of the Lok Shakti was once an occupant of the house. For a very brief period, the house was occupied by the Janata Dal (United), too.
