Karnataka BJP chief B S Yeddyurappa Wednesday welcomed the Supreme court order on the political crisis, asserting that it was a “moral victory” for the rebel MLAs, whose resignations have pushed the ruling Congress-JDS coalition to the brink of collapse.

The apex court gave its verdict keeping all the facts about Karnataka in mind, he said. Against this backdrop, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy will have to resign on Thursday when he will face the confidence vote in the Assembly, Yeddyurappa told reporters here. “When there is no majority, he (chief minister) will automatically resign tomorrow,” he said.

The BJP president also emphasised that the speaker has been directed to take a decision at the earliest and submit his order to the Supreme Court. “I welcome the Supreme Court decision. It is a victory of the Constitution and democracy. It is a moral victory for rebel MLAs. “It is only an interim order and in the future, the SC will decide the power of the speaker. It will set a new trend in the parliamentary democracy,” Yeddyurappa said.
