BS Yeddyurappa was sworn as chief minister on Thursday after a nod from Supreme Court.

The matter will be taken up by a top court bench on Friday. The new CM did indicate after his swearing-in that he may not need that long to prove his majority.

State Gov. Vajubhai Vala invited the BJP on Wednesday to form the government after it emerged as the single largest party in the state legislature following the May 12 poll.

In 2015, the JDU had aligned with the Congress and the RJD.

"The election outcome, regardless of who controls the government, already shows the BJP remains popular, they can swing states that are otherwise challenging to win, and still have a superior political strategy", said Shailesh Kumar, Asia director at political risk firm Eurasia Group. They said that the governor has assured to reply after reviewing the winners' list released by the Election Commission. Congress leaders criticised BJP for openly indulging in purchasing MLAs. This is the town in Bidadi where the Eagleton Resort in which Congress MLAs were lodged is located.

The Indian National Congress (INC) party now holds Karnataka, the first major state voting for an assembly in 2018. Keep them in confinement.

Stormy Daniels has filed a defamation complaint in federal court in NY over a tweet by US President Donald Trump . Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had a tryst with Trump in 2006 while he was married.

When the court wanted to know whether staking a claim to form the government with only 104 MLAs would not result in horse-trading, the attorney-general, Mr Venugopal, argued that since the elected candidates had not taken the oath, they were not subject to the anti-defection law.

All eyes are now on the SC and what call it takes. "All eyes are now on the Supreme Court to come out in protection of the Constitutional ethos on which the very foundation of our nation rests".

Pioneered by late Andhra Pradesh chief minister N.T. Rama Rao around 1984, resort politics has been used by political parties in states like Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Chief Minister of Karnataka B.S. Yeddyurappa speaks with the media after meeting with the state governor to stake claim to form the government, outside the governor's house in Bengaluru, India, May 16, 2018. This was followed by a midnight courtroom drama in the Supreme Court, which after hearing the case on an urgent basis, allowed Yeddyurappa's swearing in ceremony to go ahead as planned.

The news that the chartered flights meant to fly the Congress-JD (S) MLAs out of the HAL airport was denied permission is fake. Any party or grouping needs 112 members to claim majority as per the present strength of the House. "Nor was the Congress able to convince people that it had anything better to offer in terms of economic betterment and their livelihood issues, given the fact that the Modi government is aggressively pursuing the very neo-liberal policies which the Congress stands for", the editorial said.
