BJP demands resignation of CM

BJP leaders stage a protest at General Thimayya Circle in Madikeri on Tuesday.

BJP leaders staged a protest at General Thimayya Circle in Madikeri on Tuesday, urging Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to step down from his post, as the current coalition government has lost the majority.

BJP district committee president B B Bharatish said that even though there is a lack of numbers, the Congress and JD(S) have continued their coalition government.

The people are disappointed with the way the government has been performing from the last one and a half years. The coalition government should be dissolved and a chance should be given to BJP to form the government, he added.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has neglected the development of the state, the protestors said.

Demanding the resignation of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, BJP workers staged a protest in Chikkamagaluru. The protesters took out a rally from BJP office to Azad Park.

BJP district unit spokesperson C H Lokesh said that the JD(S) had come to power through back door entry with the support of the Congress. Dejected over the behaviour of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, MLAs from Congress and JD(S) have tendered their resignation.

BJP district general secretary H D Thammaiah said, "Kumaraswamy is behaving like he is the chief minister of four districts. The BJP has no role to play in the resignation of the MLAs."
