The BJP's BS Yediyurappa will be sworn in for the fourth time as Karnataka Chief Minister this evening, three days after the coalition government led by HD Kumaraswamy failed a test of strength. Mr Yediyurappa met with Governor Vajubhai Vala this morning to stake claim and urged him to schedule an oath ceremony today. Mr Yediyurappa has to prove his majority by July 31 but sources say he may seek a trust vote before that, on Monday. "I am 101 per cent confident of getting the numbers," he told NDTV. The BJP's move ends speculation that the party was playing it safe to secure its numbers in the assembly.
