Mysuru, May 17:- Amidst all the political melodrama and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress-JD(S) combine staking claim to form government in Karnataka, BJP’s Legislature Party leader B S Yeddyurappa took oath and secrecy as the 23rd Chief Minister of Karnataka at Raj Bhavan in Bengaluru on Thursday.
Janata Dal (Secular) and Congress members staged a protest condemning the BJP in forming government without securing a clear majority in state Assembly elections.
Meanwhile, the Congress workers expressed their dissatisfaction over the party leaders behaviour which led to the party’s defeat in the polls. They alleged that the individual pride of the party leaders is the reason behind the defeat of the party candidates in Chamaraja and Krishnaraja Constituencies.
The protesters were involved in a spat in the presence of former MLA Vasu who lost in Chamaraja Constituency. They shouted slogans against former Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) chairman D Dhruvakumar. They alleged that Dhruvakumar worked against the victory of Congress candidates. (HN, NGB)
