Very fast: Yeddyurappa resigned; Kumaraswamy sworn-in today?

Bangalore, May 19: Just two days after taking oath as the Chief Minister, Karnataka BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa resigned ahead of the crucial vote of confidence on the floor of the house. With Yeddyurappa s departure, all eyes are on HD Kumaraswamy, the CM choice for the Congress-JD(S) combine. State Governor Vajubhai Vala., who has faced many criticisms in favor of the BJP, would call Kumaraswamy to form the government. The governor will call him today, and he will be sworn in as Chief Minister today. Congress-JDS has the strength of 117 MLAs, sources added.While talking to the media, Kumaraswamy said, "We are waiting for an invitation from Governor s House." The post-poll alliance has already staked claim to form the next government in Karnataka.An emotional Yeddyurappa lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that despite a Congress government in the state, the PM never discriminated against Karnataka. "PM Modi has helped the Karnataka government even when Congress was in power," he said.
