BS Yeddyurappa resigned as the Chief Minister of Karnataka ahead of a crucial floor test, announcing the same in a dramatic speech. The Supreme Court had yesterday ordered a floor test in the Karnataka Assembly at 4 PM today, drastically slashing the 15-day window given by Governor Vajubhai Vala to BJP Chief Minister Yeddyurappa to prove his majority. 

Here are the top quotes from Yeddyurappa's speech:

# Mandate was not for Congress or JD(S)

# I have traveled throughout the state for the last two years and have seen pain on the faces of people. I can't forget the love & affection I received from people

# Yeddyurappa says his life has been trial by fire. Promises to win all 28 seats for BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha. Karnataka CM virtually breaks down during his speech

# If only people would have given us 113 seats instead of 104, we would have made this state a paradise: BS Yeddyurappa

# Karnataka CM says he feels bad for the MLAs of JD(S) and Congress who were taken away from their families

# Whether in govt or opposition, will fight Kumarawamy till last breathe

# "I resign as CM of Karnataka. Will go to Governor and hand over my resignation", says Yeddyurappa

# There were people on  the other side of the fence who had decided to support me; I am prepared to go out and work to bring 150 seats in Karnataka for Prime Minister Narendra Modi either in 5 years' time or in the interim

# I promise that I will fight for the rights and welfare of the farmers and the weak till my last breath. My whole life has been a constant fight. I will continue to fight for what is right
