Karnataka BJP calls for legislative party meet, demands HD Kumaraswamy’s immediate resignation

Yeddyurappa asserted that BJP workers would protest tomorrow as the Congress-JDS coalition has already lost the majority. He further added that the coalition has lost the confidence and have no moral right to stay in power.

As BJP continues to reiterate they have no role in the current political crisis in Karnataka, the party called for a legislative meeting today. Karnataka BJP President BS Yeddyurappa has now demanded that Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy tender his resignation immediately.

Yeddyurappa asserted that BJP workers would protest tomorrow as the Congress-JDS coalition has already lost the majority. He said that the coalition has lost confidence and have no moral right to stay in power.

Reportedly, Yeddyurappa had earlier said that party is expecting more Congress and JD(S) MLAs to quit and BJP would soon decide its future course of action. The party also blamed Congress for the failure of the current Congress-JDS coalition.

13 Congress-JDS MLAs submitted their resignations on Saturday, following which the coalition now holds 105 seats in the assembly, bringing them at par with BJP. The same evening, 10 MLAs flew out of Bengaluru in a private charter plane, they are now lodged in a Mumbai hotel.

Since Sunday, Youth Congress workers have been protesting outside the hotel demanding that MLAs take back their resignations while several protesters have been detained.

The coalition has been pushed towards the edge as another MLA resigned today. Followed by these developments, all 21 ministers in Karnataka government voluntarily resigned from the Cabinet to enable the reconstitution of a fresh Cabinet by accommodating disgruntled MLAs.

CM Kumaraswamy has, however, said there is nothing to worry, “I don’t have any kind of anxiety about the present political development.”

Kumaraswamy who had gone to the United States on a private visit had to rush back after a series of resignation threatened the existence of his government. After returning back to Bangalore on Sunday, he held a series of meetings with leaders of his party JD(S) and its ally Congress in a bid to rescue the coalition government.
