Former Chief Minister and the BJP's face in Congress-ruled Karnataka, BS Yeddyurappa, has been named in a corruption case by the state's Anti-Corruption Bureau. The case involves the change of land use of a huge 257-acre tract in near Yelahanka in north Bengaluru in 2008, when Mr Yeddyurappa was the Chief Minister. From agricultural land, it was converted to non-agricultural land, which led to a loss of crores to the state government.
