Bangalore, Nov 30: BS Yeddyurappa marched towards Vidhan Soudha in Bangalore on Friday, Nov 30. The former Karnataka Chief Minister finally proved his power weakening Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in entire South India, especially in Karnataka.
Ahead of his resignation, all party leaders from Yeddyurappa's assembly constituency Shikaripura in Shimoga district stepped down to join his new party.
Leading the huge rally in Bangalore, the 70-year-old Lingayat leader said that he is all set to break his 40-year-old relation with BJP.
Yeddyurappa is the man who brought BJP to power for the first time in Karnataka.
Yeddyurappa on Friday claimed that he had tolerated BJP's ignorance and now he would not continue to demand the central party leadership to re-appoint him as the CM of the state.
The rebel BJP leader would launch his new party - Karnataka Janata Party (KJP) on Dec 9. Yeddyurappa decided to break his ties with BJP as he was disappointed with the BJP leadership and believes that the party high command has ditched him by not giving him back the chief minister's post. He was forced to step down following his alleged involvement in several corruption cases.
