B.S. Yeddyurappa, president of the Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP), said on Thursday that the BJP had been reduced to a minority in the Assembly and, therefore, it had no moral right to continue in power. BJP leaders should at least now realise that it was unconstitutional to continue in power, he said.
Addressing presspersons here on Thursday, Mr. Yeddyurappa said that Mr. Shettar should have resigned long ago, especially after many of legislators resigned from the BJP.
Stating that the BJP was losing its ground in the State, he said that it would certainly be relegated to the last place in the urban local body and Assembly elections.
The BJP had no eminent leader in the State and it earned a bad reputation owing to poor governance. People were disappointed with the BJP government and people were responding well to the KJP during recent tour of the State, Mr. Yeddyurappa claimed.
