Karnataka CM welcomes court verdict
Bangalore: Hailing the Karnataka High Court verdict upholding the disqualification of 11 BJP rebel MLAs, Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on Friday described it as "epoch making" and a major step towards eradicating the menace of defection in the country.
"This order has come as a warning bell to those who indulge in defection. I hope this will herald a new era in bringing an end to defections in the country," Yeddyurappa
told a news agency.
Yeddyurappa, overwhelmed by Justice VG Sabhahit`s ruling upholding disqualification of the rebel MLAs for withdrawing support to his government, said "this has enhanced
my responsibilities now. Now I have to give a further fillip to development activities".
