Same party in Karnataka and Centre: BJP changes long standing trend
The new BJP government has 15 days to gather enough support to survive a vote in the legislature on its leadership. The court issued a notice to Yeddyurappa , asking him to produce the letter before the next hearing on 18 May.

Indeed, the publisher's latest financials showed GTA Online - the multiplayer portion of Rockstar's open-world effort - is still a huge growth driver, with Take-Two revealing the title generated "record results" during the fourth quarter of the year. Looking ahead, Take-Two management said GTA Online players can expect even more new content, with official and specific announcements coming later from Rockstar Games. These are counted in Take-Two's "recurrent consumer spending category", which saw its performance grow year-over-year.

During the earnings call, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick discussed why he thinks GTA V has been so successful, he said: "I think what Rockstar Games has uniquely shown the ability to do is to make the title easy to approach and hard to master".

CEO Strauss Zelnick said the company had benefited from better-than-expected sales for Grand Theft Auto Online, calling it "another outstanding year", citing earnings and cash-flow improvements in its operations and profit-margin expansion. As we told you before, it is a version that includes the base game, as well as several bonuses for Grand Theft Auto Online.
