Bangalore, Oct 30 (UNI) In an unexpected move, Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur today summoned JD(S) and BJP Joint Legislature Party leader B S Yeddyurappa and assured him on sending a report related to his claim of forming a new government to the centre at the earliest.
Mr Yeddyurappa, accompanied by State BJP Chief Sadananda Gowda was in Raj Bhavan for over one hour, quoting the Governor said he had verified the letters of 129 legislators submitted to him individually yesterday. The Governor would send his recommendation to the Centre and " I expect that we may be invited to form the government within next two days," he hoped.
Mr Yeddyurappa, however, said that there was no change in the joint agitation 'Raj Bhavan' by both BJP and JD(S) from tomorrow in protest against 'inordinate delay' by the Governor in inviting parties to form the government.
The Legislators of both parties had met the Governor yesterday evening and submitted a copy of the letter stating that Yeddyurappa had been elected the leader of the Joint Legislature Party and that he be invited to form a new government in the state. The BJP had also given a 24 hour time deadline to the Governor to inform his decision in this regard.
