Bangalore, Oct 7: Former Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today demanded Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to resign from his post by this evening and apologies to the people of the state for employing unethical means to remain in power. Addressing a huge rally after submitting the letter of withdrawal of support to the JD(S) to the Governor he said that party was in favour of taking a fresh mandate from the people of Karnataka.
Mr Kumarswamy had encashed on the image of his father, former Prime Minister and national JD (S) President H D Devegowda and betrayed the people of the state, he alleged.
"Mr Devegowda, due to his love for his son, indulged in dirty politics and betrayed Kannadigas. It is an insult to the people of the state. I challenge him to come for a public debate on the atrocities on minority community committed, if any, by BJP as claimed by him," he challenged.
The BJP leader also dealt on his performance as a Finance Minister saying that due to his effort the government could mobilise an additional revenue of Rs 15,000 crore in the last two years.
He said the party would launch a state-wide campaign from tomorrow against the JD(S) act of betrayal in not transferring the power to BJP as per the agreement.
