Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa Steps Down, Gets Emotional as he Bids Adieu

Yediyurappa resigns…get the details…

Tuesday, 27th July 2021

Ending weeks of speculation, the chief minister of Karnataka BS Yediyurappa announced his decision to resign from his post in a speech he made on Monday. A tearful Yediyurappa was seen breaking down on the stage where he was delivering his piece.

The occasion was to mark the two-year completion of the current government which however, ended in the CM’s sudden announcement of resignation.

The 78-year old leader said in his speech in the Vidhan Sabha that he was constantly being questioned in these two years of his fourth term about his decisions and policies. This, he said would have probably been his last term, given the BJP’s age limit of 75 years for posts. He said, “I have decided to resign. I will meet the Governor after lunch.”

Soon, after the speech, the CM walked over to the adjacent building to hand in his resignation. Yediyurappa will continue to be a caretaker Chief Minister until his party comes up with a replacement for him, a process that usually takes two or three days.

After tendering in his resignation, Yediyurappa said, “I have debt to pay back to the people of Karnataka. I ask officers and MLAs that people have lost trust in all of us. We should work harder and in clean honest way. Many officials are honest. All should become that. Bangalore is being developed to world-class city.”

He also wrote on Twitter, “Deeply influenced by Jagajyoti Basavanna's philosophy of Kayaka, Dasoha Tattva & the life of Lingaikya Shri Shivakumara Swamiji of Siddaganga Mutt, I have dedicated my entire 50 years of public life towards nation building and fulfilling the aspirations of the people of Karnataka.”

Before the big announcement was made and just before the start of the celebratory speech, BJP General Secretary CT Ravi said, "I congratulate BS Yediyurappa Ji for completing 2 years as CM today. He has done good work. He will continue to guide Karnataka and BJP.”

The Minister for Mines, Murugesh Nirani who, like Yediyurappa, also hails from the Lingayat is a likely contender for the post of chief minister. Others I the pipeline include BJP general secretary CT Ravi, Home Minister in Karanataka government Basavaraj Bommai and Union minister Pralhad Joshi.
