Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala on Wednesday invited BJP 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 9.30am," BJP spokesman Vamanacharya said.
Only Yeddyurappa will take oath at a simple ceremony in the 'Glass House' on the lawns of the Raj Bhavan. The Congress challenged the governor's action by moving the Supreme Court Chief Justice Dipak Misra for an urgent hearing.
"Vajubhai Vala denigrated the Governor's office, trampled upon the Constitution, abused the law and acted as a BJP puppet. He chose to serve his masters rather then serve the Constitution," tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
