Bengaluru | BJP Karnataka Chief BS Yeddyurappa has said that Kumaraswamy has no moral right to continue as the Chief Minister of Karnataka.
Talking to media Yeddyurappa said,” I requested the Governor to convey to the Speaker that he should take necessary action immediately. Kumaraswamy has no moral right to continue as Chief Minister, they don’t have the numbers”, as quoted by the ANI.
BJP had held a dharna to protest against the falling government and later met the Governor of the state.
Earlier when on the way to meet the governor, Yeddyurappa had said that the Chief Ministership of Kumaraswamy is now illegal.
“On 12th July, Assembly session will begin but they don’t have the numbers, it will be an illegal session. It is not too late; you (Karnataka CM, HD Kumaraswamy) should resign and make way for a BJP government”, he said.
Yeddyurappa has announced that he will also meet the Karnataka Assembly Speaker at 3 pm today to register protest over the alleged tearing of resignation papers by Congress leader DK Shivakumar.
“I will meet the Speaker at 3 pm today. Speaker has still not condemned tearing up of resignations (of rebel MLAs) by DK Shivakumar. Tearing up of resignations is an ‘apradh’ (offence) that is unforgivable,” said Yeddyurappa.
