BJP leader BS Yediyurappa took oath this evening to form the government in Karnataka. Ahead of taking oath as Karnataka Chief Minister Mr Yediyurappa asserted that there would be no politics of vengeance in his rule and he would take the opposition along. In his address to BJP workers before proceeding to the Raj Bhavan for the swearing in, he said, "We have to show the difference in the administration. There will be no politics of vengeance and I will take the opposition along."
Earlier in the day, the three-time state chief minister told news agency ANI that, "I am going to meet the Governor today at 10 am to stake claim to form the government and I will request him to hold oath ceremony today itself." "It is victory of democracy. People were fed up with Kumaraswamy government. I want to assure people of Karnataka that a new era of development will start now," Mr Yediyurappa added.
The Congress-JDS coalition government headed by HD Kumaraswamy collapsed on Tuesday after losing the vote of confidence in the assembly after a three-week long intense power struggle triggered by the Karnataka lawmakers.
