Day after the result: Amid Congress-JD(S) allegations of BJP’s horse-trading, Governor invites BS Yeddyurappa to form government

A day after the Karnataka result, a fractured verdict left the state in a state of limbo. The Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) formed a post-poll alliance and approached the Governor to stake claim of forming the government. Meanwhile, both parties accused the BJP – which is confident of forming the government – of trying to poach their MLAs.

Governor Vajubhai Vala kept everyone guessing through the day. But invited the BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa to form the government at the end of the day.
