Karnataka Government Formation Live: As Congress Tries To Fly Out Its Legislators, 3 Flights Denied Permission

Earlier in the day, BS Yeddyurappa took oath as Karnataka Chief Minister

New Delhi/Bengaluru:  BS Yeddyurappa has taken oath as Karnataka Chief Minister this morning after the Supreme Court, in a rare overnight hearing on a petition by the Congress and the Janata Dal Secular, refused to stop the ceremony. The BJP leader has been given 15 days to prove majority by the Governor on Wednesday evening. 

In an rare post-midnight hearing, the Supreme Court ruled out that it won't stop Mr Yeddyurappa swearing-in. "As far as swearing-in is concerned, we are not restraining it, but we are making it subject to the outcome of the case," a three-judge bench, comprising Justices AK Sikri, SA Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, said after the all-night hearing that stretched for three-and-a-half hours.

The Supreme Court will resume hearing the case Friday morning at 10.30 a.m. and has ordered the BJP to produce the letters submitted by BS Yeddyurappa to the governor by then.
