Karnataka: CM Yediyurappa makes changes in Cabinet to contain dissent.

Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa on Friday caved into ministers’ demands, and made changes to his Cabinet by re-distributing portfolios to calm tempers.

The changes were made less than a day after his government distributed and reshuffled several portfolios among ministers who were sworn in on January 13.

The move leaves the 77-year-old chief minister vulnerable to more such demands from disgruntled elements within his two-year-old government, which is already rattled by dissent.
