BS Yediyurappa, one of the most senior members of the Bhartiya Janata Party, resigns from his post of CM of Karnataka. The process of announcing the new CM of the state will most probably finish in the next 4-5 days, informed the Governor of the state, Thayurwarchand Gahlot. Additionally, Yediyurappa is one of the most loved Chief Ministers in Karnataka.
Besides, in the last few months, the BJP has changed 3 Chief Ministers in its different ruled states. Yediyurappa gave his resignation on 26th July, the day when he completed two years in the office for this tenure. Additionally, he said that the resignation was his decision, and there was no coercion from inside the party.
Moreover, there is no exact information on who will have the responsibilities of the state. The home, law, and parliamentary affairs minister under the Karnataka government, Basavaraj Bommai, said that BJP is a national party. And the decisions making process will take place at different levels.
Yediyurappa, the 78-years old CM, had massive support from the Lingayat community of the state. And hence, his resignation could be a huge blow for the BJP in Karnataka, one of the only states from the south to have the government run by the BJP. BS Yediyurappa also gave an emotional and sentimental speech before resigning.
