Bangalore, Oct 3 (UNI) Vidhana Soudha, the corridors of power in Karnataka, wore a deserted look as Ministers belonging to BJP who submitted their resignation letters to Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy yesterday kept away from official work.
While Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, who was among the ministers who handed over their resignation letters, was away from the city to visit a temple at Yediyur, other BJP ministers preferred to remain in the homes.
They were busy discussing the political situation following the mass resignation given as part of their protest over the delay in the transfer of power from its coalition partner JD(S).
Even many of the JD(S) Ministers also skipped official visits to the state secretariat today. The corridors of power, which always remained busy with visitors and officials coming to meet the ministers or people coming to seek official favours, wore a deserted look.
The staff in the offices of the ministers were seen busy in discussing the fragile political situation in the state.
Meanwhile, the official residences of various BJP ministers also was deserted with only gunmen and attendants seen around the premises.
There was no movement of official cars of the Ministers as BJP ministers, who went in a convoy in official vehicles to the Chief Minister home office 'Krishna' last night to submit their resignation letters, had left their official cars at CM's residence and returned in private vehicles.
The ministers handed over their resignation letters to Mr Kumaraswamy after the 'deadline' set by the BJP for the Chief Minister to demit his office had ended last evening.
