Meanwhile, the Karnataka state Congress unit hit out at BS Yediyurappa saying he has never become Chief Minister through people’s mandate but always through illegal means such as horse trading.
Everytime, his expertise in Horse Trading and Resort Politics have made him Chief Minister.
Operation Kamala may have won him the Trust Vote today, but he doesn't have the Trust of the people of Karnataka.

In twist speaker KR Ramesh Kumar submitted his resignation to the deputy speaker. In his final address Ramesh Kumar said: “I have been speaker for 14 months 4 days. I was elected unopposed. I’ve worked as constitution prescribes. We are too small but our positions are big. We should be very careful when doing our duty. Till there are electoral reforms, corruption can’t be controlled. 10th schedule needs to be relooked.”
