In the run-up to the general elections, the “former future prime minister of India” pumped iron to the pop of the photo bulbs. At the chintan baithak of BJP ministers at the JSS Mutt in Suttur, 28 km from Mysore, on Wednesday, chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa, his cabinet colleague Shobha Karandlaje, and their colleagues limber up for Thursday morning’s newspapers.
