BJP stakes claim to form government in Karnataka, Yeddyurappa to take oath as CM at 6 PM

The Karnataka government led by HD Kumaraswamy had fallen three days ago after failing the floor test.

Days after the fall of the HD Kumaraswamy led Congress-JDS government in Karnataka, BJP leader and CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa arrived to meet the governor today and staked claim to form the government.

Yeddyurappa will take oath as the CM today evening at 6 PM. The BJP will have to prove their majority by 31st July.

It is notable here that the Karnataka government led by HD Kumaraswamy had fallen three days ago after failing the floor test. An intense political drama that has been unfolding in Karnataka since earlier this month has seen many rebel MLAs from Congress and the JDS hole up inside resorts. The coalition has been alleging that BJP has poached its MLAs to dethrone the government.
