BJP to stake claim to form government in Karnataka: Yeddyurappa

BJP’s state unit chief BS Yeddyurappa will meet the Governor this morning where he is likely to present his claim to form the government.

This came a day after Karnataka Assembly speaker KR Ramesh Kumar disqualified three rebel Congress MLAs under the anti-defection law. The move had heightened the suspense over government formation exercise in the state two days after the collapse of the Congress-JD(S) ministry.

A group of Karnataka BJP leaders, including Jagdish Shettar, Arvind Limbavali, J C Madhuswamy, Basavaraj Bommai and Yeddyurappa’s son Vijayendra, met party chief Amit Shah in New Delhi and reportedly discussed the government formation.
