BJP leader Yeddiyurappa to meet Karnataka GovernorNovember 14th, 2007 - 10:20 am ICT by admin
Thakur is expected to extend Yeddiyurappa a formal invitation to form the government.
Yeddiyurappa is expected to be sworn in as Chief Minister on Monday.
Meanwhile, the JD (S) has convened a meeting on Sunday, ahead of the government formation.
On the 12-point ‘memorandum of understanding’ that JD (S) chief Deve Gowda had sent to the BJP, JD (S) state unit president Merajuddin Patel said it s not a pre-condition and it is merely an understanding between the two partners for smooth governance.
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 Yediyurappa’s leadership.
Earlier, Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur had submitted his report on the political situation in the State to the Union Home Ministry. (ANI)
