The markets ended lower for the fifth straight session on Monday, following the resignation of the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) B S Yeddyurappa in the Karnataka Assembly despite positive global cues.
The S&P BSE Sensex ended at 34,616, down 232 points while the broader Nifty50 index settled at 10,517, down 80 points.
B S Yeddyurappa’s third chief ministerial stint lasted all of 55 hours, and his resignation on Saturday evening came as a shot in the arm for an Opposition struggling to mount a united challenge to the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Among sectoral indices, the Nifty PSU Bank index ended 2.66% higher led by a rise in the shares of Bank of India, Union Bank of India and Punjab National Bank. However, the Nifty Realty index fell 3.29%, Nifty Pharma slipped 2.78% and Nifty Metal ended 1.68% lower.
