BJP's B S Yeddyurappa Sworn in as Karnataka CM, gets 15 days to prove majority Thursday May 17,2018

B S Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the chief minister of Karnataka for a second time on Thursday May 17,2018, after an overnight high-voltage legal battle in the Supreme Court.

The 75-year-old Lingayat strongman was administered the oath of office and secrecy by Governor Vajubhai Vala at a ceremony at Raj Bhavan amid loud cheering by his supporters. Yeddyurappa was administered the oath alone, hours after the Supreme Court refused to stay his swearing-in.

In a rare post-midnight courtroom battle, the Congress-JD(S) combine made a desperate legal push to stall the government formation. Yeddyurappa has 15 days to prove his majority in the Assembly.

The BJP has 104 MLAs in the House, eight short of the magic figure of 112. Polling was held in 222 of the state's 224 seats.

Election to the Jayanagar seat was countermanded following the death of the BJP candidate, while polling was deferred to May 28 for R R Nagar seat due to alleged electoral malpractices.

The ‘Murder of Democracy’ happens the minute a desperate Congress made an ‘opportunist’ offer to the JD(S), not for Karnataka’s welfare but for their petty political gains. Shameful!

Congratulations to @BSYBJP on being sworn in as Karnataka CM. I am sure that the state, which has been deprived of growth for years, will be on a development track. Wishing you the very best in taking Karnataka to new heights of progress in the coming years.

What is happening in Karnataka today is a rehearsal for what will happen after the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi.

Governor in Karnataka is doing the same as LG is doing in Delhi, both are playing with the Constitutional values.

In current scenario they are only following the orders of BJP top brass without keeping the fact in mind that they are at constitutional posts.
