Bengaluru, (DHNS): Bookanakere Siddalingappa Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister of Karnataka at Raj Bhavan on Thursday morning. He took oath in the name of God and farmers. With a green shawl draped around his shoulder, the same one he wore when he was sworn-in as chief minister in 2008, Yeddyurappa was administered the oath of office by Governor Vajubhai R Vala. The 75-year-old was the sole member of the BJP, which emerged as the single largest party, to take the oath.
Yeddyurappa has 15 days to prove on the floor of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly the required majority to form a government. The required number to form a government is 112. At this moment, the BJP has 104 legislators. The Congress-JD(S) combine claims to have a numerical strength of 117. Congress legislators, who were moved to a resort last night to keep them from being traded, announced a protest in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statue at Vidhana Soudha.
