Bengaluru: Karnataka Congress leaders have started a ‘dharna’ at the state legislature demanding resignation of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister K.S. Eshwarappa.

Eshwarappa had courted controversy earlier by stating that one day saffron flag will be hoisted on the Red Fort. Congress MLAs led by Opposition leader Siddaramaiah and State Congress President D.K. Shivakumar had given deadline for the ruling BJP government to sack Eshwarappa till Thursday morning.

Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa and the Speaker Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri personally went and met Congress leaders in the assembly and requested to end the “day and night” agitation. However, the Congress leaders refused to soften their stand.
