Former Karnataka Chief Minister, whose government was toppled in July this year, has said that current CM and BJP leader, B.S. Yediyurappa will meet the same fate as that of Devendra Fadnavis.

After Fadnavis quit as Maharashtra Chief Minister, ending his four-day stint and bringing an end to the prolonged political battle in the state, Kumaraswamy took to Twitter and said: "Popular adage 'reap what you sow' aptly applies to Fadnavis. He has harvested the bounty he has sown. (BSY will soon land himself in a similar situation)."

The Janata Dal-Secular leader said the BJP, "which is after lust for power", has paid a heavy price.

The BJP formed the government in Maharashtra, with the help of NCP leader Ajit Pawar, on November 23 morning in a hush-hush manner, stunning the NCP, Congress and Shiv Sena, who had a day earlier, announced to stake claim to form the government in the state.

It was followed by a legal battle in the Supreme Court which on Wednesday ordered a floor test to be conducted for Fadnavis to prove majority. However, hours after the order, Fadnavis and his deputy resigned from their posts, paving way for Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP to form the government.

Reacting to these political developments, Kumaraswamy further said: "Hope Maharashtra setback dawns wisdom on BJP to shed its LUST for power, game of toppling govts and forcing unwanted elections."
