BS Yeddyurappa takes oath as the Chief Minister of Karnataka

BS Yeddyurappa has taken oath as Karnataka Chief Minister this morning after the Supreme Court, in a rare overnight hearing on a petition by the Congress and the Janata Dal Secular, refused to stop the ceremony. The BJP leader has been given 15 days to prove majority by the Governor on Wednesday evening. Challenging Karnataka governor decision to invite BJP to form the government in the state, Senior advocate Ram Jethmalani moves Supreme Court in his personal capacity, seeks CJI's permission to intervene in the case.

The Congress, which won 78 seats in the elections, has allied with the JD(S), which has 37 seats, in a bid to keep the BJP out of power. The alliance, which has 115 MLAs in its kitty, had met the Governor on Thursday to stake claim to form the government. Following the Governor’s move, the alliance petitioned the Supreme Court late Wednesday night. The top court, however, refused to stay BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa swearing-in but made it clear that the government formation would depend on the final verdict in the case.
