Karnataka CM Yeddyurappa resigned and quits assembly after emotional speech
Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has resigned after a long speech in the assembly on the day of the Supreme Court-ordered floor test. After ending the speech and announcing his resignation, he walked out of the assembly. The election results came out on May 15.
Speaking in Vidhana Soudha, Yeddyurappa said,”Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah made me the Chief Minister candidate on Babasaheb Ambedkar’s Birth Anniversary.” However, Former chief minister Siddaramaiah interrupted BS Yeddyurappa and asked him to move the motion.
“If we had 113 seats, we would have changed the fate of this state. That did not happen. I expected the MLAs to come to my side. We will win all 28 Lok Sabha seats, that I assure the people. In the next assembly elections, we will win 150 seats. I will tour the state after this session. I will bring the party to power on my own. MLAs are fearful and scared. The JD(S) and Congress are harassing them. Even without power, I fight and live for the people. The Congress has subverted democracy. I am off to the Governor’s house. I now give my resignation to the people of Karnataka,” says BS Yeddyurappa.
“The Congress government did nothing for the farmers or people of Karnataka. It is the dream of PM Modi to uplift the lives of the people of Karnataka. I want to fulfil PM Modi’s dream of joining the rivers in Karnataka to solve the farmer problems. Congress has divided the society on basis of caste and religion. PM Modi showed no partiality despite the state being ruled by Congress. My entire life has been a test, today is one more. Today is agnipariksha day,” says BS Yeddyurappa as he breaks down in the Legislative Assembly.
