Karnataka CM BS Yeddyurapa has announced his resignation after failing to secure 112 to form the government. At 3:30 PM, the house reconvened and 2 MLA who had not turned up had been sworn in. The atmosphere heated up after the Congress released audio proof of the BJP trying to lure their MLAs. The audio clip featured CM Yeddyurappa and Congress leader BC Patil. A further clip captured MLA Sreeramulu and BC Patil.
BJP rose from 40 to 104 to become the single largest party. People of Karnataka are with BJP & in a Democracy this is what matters most.
Graceful conduct of #yeddyurappa ji in the assembly. His decision to resign & go to the public & seek their blessings is commendable. @BSYBJP

Yeddyurappa Gave 20 Min Resignation Speech
In an emotional 20 minute speech by the resigning CM, he mentioned that he had great dreams of developing the state. He stated,
“Dear Kumaraswamy, I am a fighter and I will fight till my last breath”
to the Congress-JDS CM canditate.
“I come from a background of struggle. I will lose nothing if I lose power… am going straight to Governor’s house to give my resignation,”
he said at the concluding moments of his speech.
Karnataka shows there is still some morality left in politics but alas not in the BJP. Now the governor should also resign.
