Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday extended his wishes to K R Ramesh Kumar and said, “Latter served excellently as a speaker of Karnataka Legislative Assembly without any prejudice. ”

Siddaramaiah tweeted, “K R Ramesh Kumar served excellently as a speaker of Karnataka Legislative Assembly without any prejudice. His honest decisions have set an example in the country showing how a speaker should conduct himself. I sincerely thank and wish him for all his contributions as a speaker.”

Karnataka Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar on Monday announced his resignation after the House adopted the confidence motion moved by Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and passed the Appropriation Bill.

“I have decided to relieve myself from this office…. I have decided to resign,” the Speaker said and handed over his resignation letter to the Deputy Speaker Krishna Reddy.

Kumar said during his 14-month-long tenure as the Speaker, he had worked according to his “conscience” and in accordance with the Constitution. “I have upheld the dignity of the office to the best of my ability,” he added.

The Speaker’s action came soon after Yediyurappa won the one-line confidence motion by voice vote and the House passed the Appropriation Bill and a day after he disqualified 14 more rebel MLAs, in addition to the three earlier.
