2 Karnataka Cong MLAs Resign, Yeddyurappa Says Open to Forming New Govt


Bengaluru: The wobbly coalition government in Karnataka suffered a jolt on Monday after Anand Singh, Congress MLA from Vijayanagar, resigned from the Assembly. “Yes. I have resigned. Today morning, I submitted the resignation,”Anand Singh said.

Later on Monday, Karnataka Congress MLA Ramesh Jarkiholi also resigned from the state assembly membership and submitted his resignation to the Speaker.

The BJP in Karnataka appears to be closely monitoring the situation as Karnataka BJP chief and former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa hinted at exploring possibilities of forming a government if the Congress-JD(S) coalition government falls before completing its term.

“If the government falls on own its own, we will explore the possibilities of forming the new government but there is no question of fresh elections,” Yeddyurappa was quoted as saying by NDTV.
