On his way to inspect Namma Metro work on Friday morning, Yeddyurappa ends up giving Bangaloreans a darshan of traffic jams


Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa held up peak hour traffic in the city on Friday morning on his way to take stock of Namma Metro work.
On Old Madras Road, near Byappanahalli, traffic was held up for almost 20 minutes. Siddaraju, a commuter said, “We do not know which minister is passing on this road. Traffic has come to a stand still. We are tired of this but also used to it. I guess patience is the key in such situations.”
Traffic came to a grinding halt as he proceeded towards Hebbal road to visit Karnataka Veterinary Animal and Fisheries Science University.
Manu Raj, a college student from University of Agriculture Sciences, said, “It is frustrating to stand out in the hot sun and wait for some minister to pass by.” From the varsity the CM proceeded to Karnataka Soaps and Detergents Limited. His last stop was Mysore Lamps. In all, his bus travelled 46 kilometers in the city from 8.45 am to 12.15 pm.
Even though Yeddyurappa had stated in a press conference that such inspection work would be conducted early in the morning to avoid traffic jams, he faltered as the darshan started almost one hour behind schedule.
