Yeddyurappa has vowed to destroy BJP government in the state on Tuesday, Dec 25. The reason behind Yeddyurappa's anger is that BJP has sacked 30 of his followers from the party. The 70-year-old politician said that BJP government did not have a mandate to rule in Karnataka. Yeddyurappa added that Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar did not have required numbers of MLAs to run the government.
Yeddyurappa said he would meet governor HR Bhardwaj with the request to ask the government to prove its majority.
"The government has been reduced to a minority. Chief minister Jagadish Shettar has no moral right to continue. I will apprise the governor of the situation. I am sure the governor will appreciate my concern. As per my understanding of the situation, there is a minority government in the state and if they do not take the corrective measures, the state may head towards a constitutional crisis, necessitating a fresh mandate," Yeddyurappa told reporters in Mysore.
Speaking to presspersons on the sidelines of a party function, Yeddyurappa said, "The BJP government has again removed chairpersons of boards and corporations that belonged to the KJP. It has left me with no option but to harden my stand on the status of the government."
