After months of speculation, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa on Monday resigned from the top post. The towering Lingayat leader had on Sunday announced that he would take the decision on his future as Karnataka CM on July 26 when his government completed two years in the state.
Speaking about his possible resignation, Yediyurappa on Sunday said, “We will see tomorrow. I haven’t received any information from high command yet. By tonight or tomorrow morning I’ll get to know. Tomorrow we will celebrate the two-year anniversary (of the Karnataka government that was elected to power in 2019).”
Yediyurappa’s remarks came even as BJP president JP Nadda lauded the Karnataka CM for doing a “good job”.
“One after another I faced agni pariksha. I’ve worked in spite of it. I don’t know how to thank government workers, chief secretary. All of them worked hard and trusted me. Karnataka saw development because of this,” Yediyurappa said.
