Yeddyurappa requests Karnataka governor to invite BJP to form government
BS Yeddyurappa, former Karnataka chief minister and now BJP's CM candidate, said he has requested Vajubhai Vala, Karnataka governor, to allow BJP to form the state's government to the earliest.
Vajubhai Vala, the Karnataka governor, will have to decide whether to call BJP, the single largest winner of seats, to try to form the government or go with the JD(S)-Congress combine, which together have a clear majority in the 224-member Assembly.
History seems to be repeating for Karnataka as no party has secured a clear majority.
