Karnataka's chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa finally resigned on a gloomy and cloudy on Sunday amid high drama after keeping everybody guessing as he delayed his appointment with state governor H.R. Bhardwaj by over an hour.
The 68-year-old submitted his one-line resignation letter to Bhardwaj at Raj Bhavan, three days after the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) parliamentary board directed him to quit in the light of his indictment in the multi-crore mining scam by state Lokayukata (ombudsman) Justice (retd) N. Santosh Hegde.
