Karnataka LIVE: CM Frontrunner Yeddyurappa May Visit Delhi as BJP Gears Up to Stake Claim to Power

A day after the fall like the HD Kumaraswamy government, BJP master and Lingayat strongman BS Yeddyurappa is expected to visit Delhi to meet party chief Amit Shah while the BJP things up to stake right to power in the southern state. All eyes are immediately on Governor Vajubhai Vala, who accepted Kumaraswamy’s resignation late on Tuesday and asked him to lead a guardian gov.

Next Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar put the confidence motion moved by Kumaraswamy to vote on Tuesday, the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) party polled 99 votes and the opponent BJP 105. Nine MLAs, including 17 from the JDS and that Congress, were taken.
In the 225 member assembly, the BJP is the only largest party with 105 representatives. Yeddyurappa, late at Tuesday night, said he would meet Vala to stake a case behind consulting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah.

Yeddyurappa, who ought to quit within 56 hours after being sworn in as the chief minister during Spring last year, is likely to be back at the helm after his seventh attempt at the coalition yielded the desired results.

Union Minister Pralhad Joshi said the BJP would stake claim to form the government after taking control from the central authority. “We are running to stake the claim to form this government, but the order of the rules is determined after taking guidance from the national officers,” Joshi told reporters in New Delhi.

While, the end of 15 independent legislators 12 from the Congress and 3 from the Janata Dal (Secular) also proceed to be doubtful as Kumar is yet to accept a final call on receiving their submissions, and rejection petitions pending on them.

The Supreme Court also is yet to take a call on the issue of resignation and both that Congress including JD(S) legislature parties have impleaded themselves in the matter.
