Yeddyurappa stepping down as CM stark reminder of Vajpayee's resignation as PM

Updated 19 May 2018 10:54 PM

BS Yeddyurappa's stepping down as Karnataka Chief Minister without facing the trust vote was a stark reminder of BJP stalwart Atal Bihari Vajpayee resigning as Prime Minister 22 years ago.

Vajpayee had resigned just 13 days after being in power due to lack of numbers.

Twenty two years ago, Kumaraswamy's father and JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda had become Prime Minister after the fall of the Atal Behari Vajpayee government.

Kumaraswamy is now set to head the Congress-JDS coalition government.

The May 12 Karnataka assembly elections threw up a hung assembly, giving the maximum of 104 seats to BJP, followed by Congress,which got 78. JD(S) secured 37 seats, while two independents got elected.

Just like Yeddyurappa led BJP,the BJP in 1996 too secured the maximum seats and emerged as the single largest party, but was short of a majority.
