Yeddyurappa sworn-in as Karnataka CM

Yeddyurappa sworn-in as Karnataka CM

However, both sides staked claim to form the government and met Vajubhai Vala at Raj Bhawan. "Where are the Income Tax officials now?" the former Chief Minister asked at a press conference after a party legislators' meet held here.

It is quite natural that both these "secular" parties have made a decision to keep the BJP out of power, he said.

"We had to be ready for any eventuality". Meanwhile, senior Congress leaders, including Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ashok Gehlot and Siddaramaiah, are protested at Vidhan Soudha against the swearing-in. Congress has chose to approach the Supreme Court in case the Governor decides to invite the BJP to form government.

The hearing in court number 6 of the Supreme Court began after Abhishek Manu Singhvi filed a petition on behalf of the Congress-JD (S) alliance. Congress MLA Amaragowda Linganagowda told the media that BJP has sought his support and that they also offered him ministership.

"We have all together discussed and decided this".

He, however, added that any alliance without the Congress would not work, given its pan-India footprint.

BJP president Amit Shah on Thursday described the swearing-in of BS Yeddyurappa as the Karnataka Chief Minister a "victory of every Kannadiga" who voted to "uproot the corrupt and divisive politics" of the Congress. "People are with us", he said.

When B S Yeddyurappa and Kumaraswamy formed a coalition in 2007, it was not a smooth ride for the BJP with JD (S) backtracking on its word regarding power share. "It is our unanimous decision".

Meanwhile, the National Transportation Safety Board stated that it is not investigating the Utah crash. Police issued the driver a traffic citation for failure to keep proper lookout.

R. Shankar visited BJP leader and chief minister candidate Yeddyurappa at his residence offered his support.

"The Congress is trying to subvert the popular mandate and come back to power through the back door". Can a person who is there to save constitution, destroy it too? Gowda's son HD Kumaraswamy is its chief ministerial candidate.

JDS (Janatha Dhal Secular) has shown its support for Congress in forming government. JD (S) who won only 37 seats and lost their deposits on several others. It was the Congress which backed AAP at that time with eight seats to hit the majority mark of 36 seats.

After expressing confidence about sweeping the polls, Congress finally ended up with 78 seats, in bleak comparison to BJP's 104 seats. Mayawati's BSP, a JD (S) ally, and KPJP have won one seat each.

Karnataka Assembly has 224 seats and a party or an alliance needs 112 seats to form the government.

"I have taken an appointment with Governor, because we are the single largest party, so they must give the opportunity to form the government", Yeddyurappa told reporters. He had also said the Congress would use Karnataka as a cash cow to win other state elections.

Kumaraswamy said though which party to invite first is the prerogative of the governor, "without the numbers how can they (BJP) form the government".
