Yeddyurappa sworn-in as Karnataka CM




BJP’s legislature party leader B.S. Yeddyurappa was sworn-in as the Karnataka Chief Minister here on Thursday hours after the Supreme Court gave the go-ahead in a pre-dawn hearing.

Governor Vajubhai Vala administered the oath of office to Yeddyurappa at 9 a.m. in the ‘Glass House’ of Raj Bhavan amid tight security.

Yeddyurappa, 75, took the oath in Kannada in the presence central and state leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party and newly-elected legislators and senior officials.

Earlier in the day, a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court declined to stay the swearing-in of Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister.
