योगी सरकार 11.50 लाख प्रवासी श्रमिकों को उपलब्ध कराएगी रोजगार

Amaravati: It seems that Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has moved ahead after breaking partnership with the BJP. Naidu has termed the resignation of BS Yeddyurappa as Karnataka Chief Minister a “victory of democracy” and said it was a day everybody should feel proud of.

“This is not an ordinary victory. Entire people of the country will be happy. It is a proud day for all of us,” Naidu said at a meeting of women self-help groups leaders here this evening.

AP chief minister said normally a party with a majority would be invited to form the government. “But, going against the tradition, the (Karnataka) governor did not invite Congress-JDS coalition (that has a majority) to form the government.

They are adopting different traditions in different states… one in Goa, another in Meghalaya because they have power,” Naidu added.

Lashing out at the BJP, the Telugu Desam Party chief said: “They spoiled politics in Tamil Nadu, misused the governor’s office, finished off persons with leadership qualities.

They tried to derive political benefit in Tamil Nadu and tried the same in Karnataka.” He claimed that the BJP’s next target would have been Andhra Pradesh.

“Entire nation is happy with the current turn of events. As a chief minister and a firm believer of democracy, I am expressing my happiness,” Naidu said.

After BS Yeddyurappa BJP quit as Karnataka chief minister on Saturday, Governor Vajubhai Vala invited the Janata Dal (Secular)-Congress combine to form the government in the State. HD Kumaraswamy heading the Congress-JDS coalition is set to become the chief minister for a second time on 23 May.
Kumaraswamy, the third son of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, had earlier headed the BJP-JD(S) coalition government for twenty months from January 2006.

After meeting the governor, Kumaraswamy had said the swearing-in ceremony would take place tentatively between 12 and 1.50 PM at Kanteerava stadium on 21 May.

However, Kumaraswamy later in the evening said the swearing-in would be held on 23 May as 21 May happens to be the death anniversary of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, and therefore it would not be appropriate to hold the ceremony on that date.
