Karnataka Governor invites Yeddyurappa to form govt

November 14th, 2007 - 10:22 am ICT by admin  

Yeddyurappa, who was accompanied by former Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy at the meeting with Karnataka Governor, will be sworn in as Karnataka Chief Minister on Monday.

“The swearing-in ceremony is on Monday. We will decide the time (of swearing-in) by tonight or tomorrow morning”, Yeddyurappa told reporters outside Raj Bhavan.

The Union Cabinet on Thursday decided to revoke President’s rule in Karnataka and revive the Assembly, which had been kept under suspended animation.

The President’s rule was imposed in the State on October 9 after BJP withdrew support from its coalition with the JD (S) due to differences over transfer of Chief Ministership as per the power-sharing agreement.

Three weeks after a bitter public spat, both parties came together deciding to form the next coalition in the State under B S Yeddyurappa’s leadership.

Earlier, Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur had submitted his report on the political situation in the State to the Union Home Ministry. (ANI)
