In 1965 Yeddyurappa joined as a clerk at Veerabhadra Shastri's Shankar rice mill at Shikaripur.
In 1967, Yeddyurappa married Mythradevi, the daughter of Veerabhadra Shastri. He later set up a hardware shop in Shimoga.

In 2004, he lost his wife when she accidentally fell into a water tank and drowned.

In 1970 he became secretary of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's Shikaripur unit
In 1972, he was elected President of the Taluk unit of the Jan Sangh.

In 1975, he was elected President of the Town Municipality of Shikaripur.
In 1980, he was appointed President of the Shikaripur taluk unit of the BJP

In 1985 he became the president of BJP's Shimoga district unit
In 1988, he became the President of the BJP unit of the state of Karnataka.

He is expert in organizing public rallies of farmers.
His work for the farmers resulted in him being elected to the assembly four times successively- between 1983 and 1994.

To urge the government to write off farmers loans he traveled the entire state three times beginning from Basavana Bagewadi. In these trips, he made over 1000 public speeches.
He entered Karnataka Legislative Assembly by winning in the 1983 elections.

He has been elected four times to the assembly and twice as President of the party.
He was elected as the Deputy Chief Minister of Karnataka on 3rd February 2006 in the JD(S) and BJP Coalition Government.
Yeddyurappa was the BJP’s only chief minister in Karnataka. He held this position for seven days in October 2007.

Yeddyurappa Property Around year 2008 –
According to his affidavit, Yeddyurappa’s total assets stand at Rs 1.82 crore against declared assets of Rs 1.2 crores in 2004 — a marginal increase of around 25 percent.

Besides cash holdings of nearly Rs 1.89 lakh, he has declared over Rs 8 lakh in bank deposits and LIC bonds and shares close to Rs 2.5 lakh.

Besides jewellery worth Rs 22 lakh, Yeddyurappa also owned two cars worth nearly Rs 10 lakh. But the biggest chunk of his assets comes in the form of agricultural land and properties. 

Yeddyurappa owns 27 acres of agricultural land in Shikaripura, valued at Rs 32 lakh.

In addition to this, he has admitted to owning four houses valued at Rs 1.05 crore.

One of these houses, Dhavalagiri, is located in Bangalore’s posh Raj Mahal Vilas (RMV) Extension, a locality that is home to several political leaders including S. Bangarappa, the Samajwadi Party’s Karnataka president. Yeddyurappa’s affidavit pegs this RMV Extension property’s value at Rs 92 lakh — a figure that according to realtors in the area is a clear undervaluation.

Says Harish N, a real estate consultant, “That is a house built on a 50’x80’ plot. If we talk current rates for the plot alone at Rs8,000 per sq ft, we are looking at a price of Rs 3.2 crore.”

In December 2008, Yeddyurappa has been conferred with an Honorary Doctorate from the Saginaw Valley State University in the USA.

But under him the corruption in the Karnataka state is rising day by day.

He is unable to stop the illegal mining.

It is only because of pressure of news channels which keep exposing the illegal mining, people come to know about this fraud and cheating.

Lok Ayukta (ombudsman) N. Santosh Hegde resigned over 'the government's indifference to fighting corruption'.

One more thing I know about him is he thinks there is a culture called 'Mall Culture and Pub Culture' and he mentioned how bad it is sometime after the attack on women in a Pub in Mangalore.
