Karnataka Floor test: Ahead of Trust Vote CM BS Yeddyurappa resigns



BS Yeddyurappa

Bengaluru, May 19: Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa resigned on Saturday before facing a crucial floor test in the Karnataka Assembly with numbers stacked against the Bharatiya Janata Party in the newly elected House.

The resignation came two days after he took oath as the 15th Chief Minister of the southern state.

Setting aside Governor Vajubhai Vala’s 15-day period, the bench of Justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde, and Ashok Bhushan on Friday ordered a floor test in the Karnataka assembly.

The May 12 election across the state in 222 constituencies of the 225-member assembly, including one nominated, threw up a hung House, with no party securing majority. Voting in two constituencies were deferred.

Of the 222 seats, the BJP attained 104, the Congress 78, the Janata Dal-Secular, 37 and one each was bagged by the Bahujan Samaj Party, the Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party and an Independent.

As JD-S leader H.D. Kumaraswamy won from both Channapatna and Ramanagaram segments, the party’s effective strength in the House was 36.


On being asked when he will take oath as Chief Minister Karnataka, JD(S)’s HD Kumaraswamy said “We are waiting for invitation from the Governor’s House”.

I’m resigning as chief minister. I’m grateful to the speaker for giving me this opportunity, stated Yeddyurappa, adding till my last breath, I’ll fight for the farmers. I’ll give my life for people.

Ahead of the trust vote, Yeddyurappa said in the assembly “If only people would have given us 113 seats instead of 104, we would have made this state a paradise”.

“I have traveled throughout the state for the last two years and have seen pain on the faces of people. I can’t forget the love & affection I received from people”, He added.

People have blessed us with 104 seats, says Yeddyurappa

Delhi Police gear up for ‘snap demos’ by farmers, tighten security

After the passing of the farm Bills, opposition MPs staged protest in the Parliament premises, marching from the Gandhi statue to the Ambedkar statue.





New Delhi, Sep 23 : The Delhi Police have geared up for ‘snap demonstrations’ by farmers’ bodies, especially in the national capital, amid the ongoing protests against the Centre’s farm bills.

The security in the national capital, especially in the border areas, has been tightened and senior Delhi Police officers are themselves monitoring the situation. Section 144 has already been imposed in the New Delhi area.

Snap demonstrations are random unnotified demonstrations that pop up at a particular place.

“We have made ample arrangements in the area and are registering cases under IPC Section 188 and other relevant sections against those found flouting the orders,” said Eish Singhal, DCP, New Delhi.

The Delhi Police had earlier said that no demonstrations would be allowed in the national capital till September 30, citing an earlier order of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA).

The missive came as political parties as well as farmers’ bodies have intensified their agitation against the three agriculture Bills passed by the Parliament recently.

On Monday, the DDMA had clarified that all social, cultural and political functions involving large gatherings are prohibited in Delhi till September 30.

But despite the orders, the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee held a protest against the farm Bills at Janpath. The police detained over 41 Congress leaders and workers, including state president Anil Kumar, while they were marching towards the Parliament.

After the passing of the farm Bills, opposition MPs staged protest in the Parliament premises, marching from the Gandhi statue to the Ambedkar statue.

The Opposition and the government are on loggerheads ever since the farm Bills were passed amid ruckus in the Upper House of the Parliament.

Meanwhile, the border areas of Delhi, especially the Singhu border and Karnal road, saw massive deployment of police and para military personnel even as the Youth Congress workers and farmers took out a tractor rally on Wednesday. Barricades and water cannons were deployed at strategic locations.
