Bangalore: In an apparent move to put pressure on the Karnataka chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy to step down and hand over power to coalition partner Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), all the BJP ministers on Tuesday resigned from the state cabinet.
Among those who handed in their resignation letters to Kumaraswamy was the state’s deputy chief minister B.S. Yediurappa. The decision to resign en masse was taken at a meeting of BJP legislators in Bangalore late on Tuesday evening.
The ruling Janata Dal (Secular), however, put off any decision on power sharing, until Friday.
