Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday heaped praise on Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai and his predecessor, BS Yediyurappa, saying Yediyurappa had stepped down from the top post on his own to make way for a new leadership to take over.

“Just recently, Yediyurappa decided on his own that a new person and leadership be given the responsibility of Karnataka. And the BJP decided that Bommai be given the responsibility of chief minister and he is the CM today,” Shah said at an event in Davangare, about 260km from the state capital.
