Damocles sword hanging over head, Yeddyurappa sworn in as CM

Damocles sword hanging over head, Yeddyurappa sworn in as CM

"Mr Yedyurappa's letter to the Governor will seal his fate". "How come the Governor invited them to form government when the BJP does not have numbers to do so the Governor has encountered the Constitution twice he has murdered democracy", he said. Congress is ill informed and as a result is making these amusing claims, says Prakash Javadekar. This was followed by a midnight courtroom drama in the Supreme Court, which after hearing the case on an urgent basis, allowed Yeddyurappa's swearing in ceremony to go ahead as planned. Congress and Janta Dal Secular party had attempt to stop the process by knocking at the door of supreme court at night yesterday. "I am not going to wait till 15 days, the time period Governor Vajubhai Vala gave, to prove majority in Assembly".

"I may also direct you that you would seek a vote of confidence on the floor of the house showing that you command the confidence of the House".

The Governor appoints and swears in the Chief Minister, whose council of ministers are collectively responsible to the assembly.

Pioneered by late Andhra Pradesh chief minister N.T. Rama Rao around 1984, resort politics has been used by political parties in states like Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat.

Another Congress leader, Jaiveer Shregill took to Twitter saying, "India is not witnessing "swearing-in" ceremony of below majority #Yeddyurappa #BJP Govt but "swallowing-in" of democratic/legal principles by Hon'ble Governor who chose to act like soldier of #BJP rather than soldier of the Constitution".

If it succeeds, the BJP and its allies would govern 22 of India's 29 states.

The 75-year-old Lingayat strongman took the oath alone, in a reflection of continued uncertainty over the longevity of his term in office after the newly formed JD (S)-Congress alliance knocked the door of the Supreme Court to stall government formation. "Unless we see that letter of support, we can not speculate", said Justice SA Bobde, one of the three judges on the bench.

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Karnataka High Court against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) forming the government in the state. To paraphrase prime minister Modi, if the Congress loses Karnataka, it will be reduced to a "PPP" party - Punjab, Puducherry, and parivaar (family).

A strong showing by the BJP in Karnataka has given him momentum for a re-election bid in next year's national polls and opened a path for more reforms, analysts say. The court also observed that the general trend of its past judgments was not to issue injunctions or to restrain the governor. "We were the single largest party and had immediately met governor after results were announced but we weren't invited to form the government". Defection is if one member crosses over to another party. He prevented Devi Lal (supported by the BJP) from being sworn in and foisted Bhajan Lal of the Congress as the chief minister.
