Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala has invited legislature party leader B S Yeddyurappa to form the government. The Governor also asked Mr Yeddyurappa to seek a vote of confidence within 15 days of assuming office as the chief minister in the floor of the house.
Briefing reporters in Bengaluru late evening, the party General secretary of BJP Muralidhar Rao said, BS Yeddyurappa got the official communication from the governor and he will take oath at 9:00 am tomorrow.
The BJP has won 104 seats in the elections in the 224-member House, emerged as the single largest party but fell short of complete majority.
The governor’s move will be a setback for the JD(S)-Congress alliance that has approached the governor with the signature of over 117 MLAs.
