Supreme Court allows Yeddyurappa to take the oath as CM but on few conditions
With the BJP asking for 15 days deadline to prove their majority and Yeddyurappa taking the oath as the new CM of Karnataka, Congress and JD(S) approached the Supreme court challenging the governor’s decision to allow Yeddyurappa to form the government.
The Supreme court which accepted the plea, but decided not to stop the BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa from being sworn-in as the chief minister of Karnataka. However, the Bench of Justices A K Sikri, S A Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, hearing the petitions by Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee chief G Parameshwara and Janata Dal (Secular) president H D Kumaraswamy, said it wanted to see the letters dated May 15 and 16 written by Yeddyurappa to Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala staking claim to form government and will hear the matter again at 10.30 am on Friday, May 18.
The Supreme Court Bench started hearing the case around 2.10 am in court no 6 with senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi representing the petitioners and Attorney General K K Venugopal appearing for the respondent-Union of India and senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi appearing for two BJP MLAs. The other two respondents for the State of Karnataka and Yeddyurappa were not represented in the matter.
The BJP emerged as the single-largest party in the Karnataka Assembly elections winning 104 seats on Tuesday, even as the next two parties, the Congress and JD(S), crafted a post-poll alliance and staked their claim to form a government in the state touting a 118-seat majority in the 222-seat election.
