After three weeks of nail-biting uncertainty, the Congress-JD(S) failed the floor test on Tuesday. The coalition could muster only 99 votes against the BJP's 105.
BJP state unit chief BS Yeddyurappa said,"It is victory of democracy. People were fed up with Kumaraswamy government. I want to assure people of Karnataka that a new era of development will start now." BS Yeddyurappa and other MLAs of the party also showed victory signs in the Vidhan Soudha after the coalition failed the floor test.
While the BJP hailed the collapse, staking a claim to form the government in the state, chief minister HD Kumaraswamy said it was an "unfortunate event".
