    Minutes after being relegated to the status of caretaker chief minister of Karnataka, B S Yeddyurappa (BSY) vented his anger at senior central BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu, who was trying to pacify him. BSY flew into a rage and grabbed Naidu's laptop and smashed it on the floor on Sunday, according to party sources.

    The incident took place in a suite at Hotel Lalit Ashok where the BJP central observers, including Naidu, a past president of BJP, had called the chief minister to demand his resignation, the sources said.

    Such was the 68-year-old Lingayat leader's anger that when a minister close to him woke him up at his Race Course Road residence, he slapped the minister's face.

    BSY was already miffed at the central leadership's decision to ask him to step down and its reluctance to heed his choice of a pliable successor. The trigger for his violent behaviour appeared to be Naidu's refusal to sign a letter supporting BSY's cause. Sources said Naidu, who had so far always supported BSY's cause, toed the central line in removing BSY as CM.

    The state minister close to BSY who faced the disgraced CM's wrath was not named by the sources.

    He must be really furious that he has been removed from being close to the cash cow.

    I hope Hegde has indicted even the earlier CMs, who too were hand in glove and also the late YSR.

    Lol!! He is one man who really loved his chair and didnt want to let go of it to fight another day. He just has a feeling that this was his first and last chance as CM and wanted to make the most of it. I have been saying this from day one of this govt of Karnataka. They have been crazy behind money for themselves like there is no tomorrow.

    I'm glad BSY's BS is coming to an end. Hope they pick his successor on pure merit.

    Can someone from KA please in a few lines tell me about Lingayat caste politics, and how do they make up the various political parties?

    BSY seems to be a very emotionally unstable man and thats the case with all religious morality preaching fanatics. He has cried in front of camera before and his eyes seems to be red each time he come out of BJP meeting with Arun Jatley as if he has thrown a tantrum and cried. Pathetic show of leadership if he is going to be like this.

    Should be renamed cry-baby-appa or moothave!
