BJP leader Advani holidaying in Kodagu
Senior BJP leader L.K. Advani has been holidaying in Kodagu along with his family members.
He is staying at the Orange County resort near Siddapur. Advani flew into Virajpet in a helicopter. He recalled his association with the late Field Marshal K.M. Cariappa.
For Mr Advani, who is the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha, this is a well deserved holiday after the grueling election campaign to the Lok Sabha which the BJP lost badly.
Mr Advani is spending his time by reading and walking amidst the greenery of the sylvan resort.
He is accompanied by his wife Kamala, son Jayanth and daughter-in-law Ruthika.
Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa is likely to visit Mr. Advani on Saturday.
The police have thrown a tight security ring around the resort and only a few BJP leaders were allowed to meet Mr Advani.
