2 days back, Yeddyurappa took oath as the chief minister of Karnataka even before proving the majority in the assembly. This move drew huge backlash as Congress and JDS were ready to form the government and had to enough members to support the cause as well. However, the governor stood by BJP and gave them 15 days time to prove their majority.
Surprisingly the saffron party is finding it really tough to gather the required support and the situation is troubling Yeddyurappa. The latest reports from Karnataka suggest that Yeddyurappa will be resigning to the CM post. Apparently Yeddyurappa has already left to the governor’s office to submit his resignation.
The floor test is set to be held at 4 PM and Yeddyurappa will be resigning before the trust vote comes to discussion, claim the reports. If this turns reality, May 19th will go down as one of the most iconic days in Karnataka’s political history and that is for sure.
