Mangaluru, July 26, 2021: Putting an end to speculations, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa today declared to resign from his post.
Yediyurappa declared this during the program organised to celebrate the 2nd year completion of his government.
Yediyurappa took charge as the Chief Minister on July 26, 2019, after the fall of the JDS-Congress government.
“I will meet the Governor today after lunch and submit my resignation,” an emotional Yediyurappa declared.
On his twitter handle, Yediyurappa thanked party leaders for their support during his term as CM.
He had earlier taken charge as the CM on May 17 in 2018 after the election. He volunteered to resign on May 19 after the party did not have enough seats in the assembly.
Before that after the 2008 election, BSY had served as CM from May 30, 2008, to July 31, 2011. But due to corruption charges, he was forced to resign allowing DV Sadananda Gowda as the CM.
The first term of BSY was the CM was after H D Kumaraswamy’s term when JDS and BJP had come together to form the government. He took charge on November 12 2007 but resigned on 19 due to lack of support.
