Karnataka LIVE updates: Yediyurappa takes oath as new CM at 6 PM

Karnataka BJP President B S Yeddyurappa will be sworn in as Chief Minister for the fourth time on Friday evening, three days after the collapse of H D Kumaraswamy-led Congress-JD(S) government.

In a sudden development, Yeddyurappa met Governor Vajubhai Vala to stake the claim and requested him to administer the oath of office and secrecy on Friday itself, following which Vala invited him to form the government.

“I have requested Governor to administer me oath between 6-6:15 p.m as the Chief Minister. The Governor has agreed and given me a letter,” Yeddyurappa told reporters after meeting Vala at Raj Bhavan.

He said, “Who all are to be inducted (in the ministry), I will discuss it with our national president and inform.”

This will be the fourth stint for Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister– the last one was after the May 2018 Assembly polls.
