Heavy rainfall in Maharashtra has triggered a flood-like situation in parts of northern Karnataka, with Maharashtra releasing huge volumes of water from its reservoirs.

It is pertinent to mention that with his Cabinet yet to be constituted, Yediyurappa was scheduled to visit Delhi for discussions with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 6 August.

Yediyurappa was sworn-in as the 25th chief minister of Karnataka on 26 July, following the collapse of the Congress-JD(S) government after it lost the trust vote in the Karnataka Assembly.

On 29 July, the BJP leader sailed through the confidence motion that was held through a voice vote in the state Assembly.
