BJP demonstrates outside Vidhana Soudha, demands CM's resignation

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Bengaluru: The BJP in Karnataka demonstrated outside the Vidhana Soudha yesterday to demand that Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy step down from office, claiming his government has lost majority after 14 MLAs of the ruling Congress-JD(S) alliance submitted their resignations.

A delegation of saffron party leaders, led by state unit chief B S Yeddyurappa also met Governor Vajubhai Vala at Raj Bhavan, submitted a memorandum to him on the matter and requested him to advice the Speaker to act immediately on the resignations.

"We have made this request.. As Kumaraswamy has lost the majority, he has to resign immediately. The Speaker, without any delay, has to accept the resignations," Yeddyurappa said.

Speaking to reporters after emerging from the Raj Bhavan, he said the Governor informed them he would take necessary action after examining everything. "We are satisfied,"he said.  To a question on whether BJP asked for a floor test, he said they had not done so and there was no question of it at all as the government had already lost majority.

"As the government has already lost its majority, if the Speaker accepts the resignations without delay, even the assembly session (from July 12) also wont happen," he added.

 Noting that there are chances of more MLAs resigning, he said Kumaraswamy should at least now understand the reality and resign as Chief Minister.
