DMK today said democracy in Karnataka has been saved by the actions of the Supreme Court and greeted the leadership of the JD(S) and Congress after BJP strongman B S Yeddyurappa resigned as chief minister minutes before the scheduled trust vote. "...May this herald the coming together of secular parties for the upcoming elections," DMK working president M K Stalin said in a tweet. "Democracy in Karnataka has been saved by the actions of the Supreme Court. I extend my congratulations to @hd_kumaraswamy and @INCIndia..." he said. Apparently taking a dig at the BJP, actor and Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan said "let the light of democracy that has come up in Karnataka spread throught out the nation." (PTI)
