After the tumultuous days following the Karnataka Assembly election, the southern state is all set to welcome its new government.
After BJP's BS Yeddyurappa in an one sided speech conceded defeat ahead of the floor test, all decks have been cleared for HD Kumaraswamy who will take oath as the new chief minister on Wednesday.
The swearing-in ceremony is likely to be place between 12 pm and 1 pm. The Congress has also extended an invitation to other opposition parties to attend the swearing-in ceremony.
On Saturday evening, Kumaraswamy met Governor Vajubhai Vala to stake claim to form the government. Kumaraswamy after meeting the Governor announced that the JD (S)-Congress will form the new government.
Talking to media persons Kumaraswamy said that he will personally call all regional leaders. He added that he will be speaking to both Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and will be discussing the modalities on forming the new government.
"We will fight to stop the BJP and RSS from destroying our institutions. We have protected the voice of the people of Karnataka. We will do the same for every state. The opposition, together in coordination, will beat the BJP", says Rahul Gandhi immediately after Yeddyurappa quits.
"Resignation of BS Yeddyurappa as Karnataka's CM is a true victory for democracy," Chandrababu Naidu tweeted.
DMK leader MK Stalin also took it to Twitter praising the actions of the Supreme Court.
West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee congratulated Kumaraswamy on Twitter.
