After the resignation of BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa from Karnataka, the Congress took to Twitter to celebrate its victory. 

The official Twitter account of the Congress congratulated Karnataka calling it the victory of democracy against the "unholy politics".

The Congress tweeted, " Democracy has finally won the battle against the unholy politics of intimidation, corruption and lies, Congratulations Karnataka"

Two days after taking oath as the chief minister of Karnataka, the BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa resigned today in the Karnataka assembly.

Yeddyurappa resigned saying, " If we had 113 seats, we would have changed the fate of this state. That did not happen. I expected the MLAs to come to my side. We will win all 28 Lok Sabha seats, that I assure the people. In the next assembly elections, we will win 150 seats. I will tour the state after this session. I will bring the party to power on my own. MLAs are fearful and scared. The JD(S) and Congress are harassing them. Even without power, I fight and live for the people. The Congress has subverted democracy. I am off to the Governor's house. I now give my resignation to the people of Karnataka".

The resignation has come a day after the Supreme Court asked the BJP to prove its majority in the legislative assembly in Karnataka.
