'There are limits to your arrogance,' Rahul Gandhi tells BJP
Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said that BJP legislators, MLAs walked out without waiting for National Anthem.
Addressing media, Rahul said,''"Did you notice that after the entire exercise in the Vidhan Soudha in Karnataka, the BJP legislators and the Speaker chose toget up and leave the House before the National Anthem."
"And in a way this is what we are fighting today - that you can rubbish any institution and walk out," Rahul said.
Rahul said that he would like to give his best wishes the people of Karnataka and JD(S) and Congress party workers. "I would like to congratulate the people, because we need to tell them that there are limits to your arrogance. There are limits to how you can run this country," Rahul said.
"You would have seen that there are audio recordings of how BJP was trying to purchase our MLAs. And this was directly sanctioned from New Delhi. This showed how the prime minister was openly sanctioning this," Rahul said.
He said, "This shows that all the anti-corruption talk by Prime Minister Modi is a blatant lie. This shows that he is corruption."
Earlier in the day, the much anticipated floor test in the Karnataka Assembly did not take place as BS Yeddyurappa chose to resign as the CM instead of facing the trust vote. Yeddyurappa made an emotional speech to the assembly when the members reconvened at 3.30 pm today. Although, Yeddyurappa did not clearly say that he was resigning because the BJP did not have the numbers, he definitely dropped hints that it was because of it. He said if only the party had 113 seats instead of 104 which makes it clear what he meant. The Congress leaders appeared jubilant and brandished victory sings as they left the house.
