Battle for Karnataka: BJP tells Governor to let them prove majority


Bengaluru, May 15: BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate B.S. Yeddyurappa announced on Tuesday evening that he had requested Governor Vajubhai Vala to let him prove majority support in the Karnataka Assembly.

Yeddyurappa came up with this statement after calling on the Governor along with party leader and Union Minister Ananth Kumar following the results of Assembly election.

“We are the single largest party. We have requested the Governor to give the BJP a chance to prove majority in the Assembly. We are staking claim to form the government,” Yeddyurappa told reporters here.

“Since we are emerging as the single largest party, we have appealed to the Governor to give us time to form the new government,” party’s spokesman S. Shantharam told IANS here.

In a major twist to the crucial Karnataka assembly elections, the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) accepted the support extended by the Congress to form a government in the state.

The JD-S has already announced that Kumaraswamy would be the party’s candidate for the Karnataka Chief Minister’s post.
