Bengaluru: Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala on Wednesday invited BJP legislative party leader B.S. Yeddyurappa to form the new government and to take oath as Chief Minister on Thursday, a party spokesman said.

"We received a communique from the Raj Bhavan, inviting Yeddyurappa to form the government and take oath at 9.30 a.m.," BJP state unit spokesman Vamanacharya told IANS here.
Only Yeddyurappa will take oath at a simple ceremony in the 'Glass House' on the lawns of the Raj Bhavan in the city centre amid tight security.
The Governor has invited party's leaders and newly-elected legislators to the oath-taking ceremony," added Vamanacharya.

In earlier rounds of “resort politics”, the buses transporting MLAs belonged to ex-JDS man Zameer Ahmed Khan’s “National Travels”. It seems to have changed to “Sharma Transport”, of D.P. Sharma, an aide of late chief minister R. Gundu Rao. #KarnatakaVerdict #OperationLotus pic.twitter.com/UgjX86qN3c-churumuri (@churumuri) May 16, 2018
