  • BS Yeddyurappa to take oath as Karnataka Chief Minister

Speaking to reporters, Jethmalani, however, made it clear that he saw gross illegality in the BJP's claim to form a government in Karnataka as well as in the manner in which the Governor refused to invite the Congress-JD (S) combine but granted the chance to Yeddyurappa. At 2.15 AM, Supreme Court bench comprising justices AK Sikri, SA Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, have commenced hearing on the matter.

The Congress party has been flailing in local election ever since Modi's rise to power and it has now been reduced to governing only one key state, Punjab, out of India's 29 states.

The eminent lawyer has sought the Chief Justice's permission to allow him to intervene in his "personal capacity" to challenge the Governor's decision of inviting Yeddyurappa to form the government.

In the hearing, former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi appeared for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta for the Union government, and Abhishek Manu Singhvi for the Congress-JD (S) alliance. In 2013, a coalition of AAP & Congress was invited to form the government when BJP was the single largest party in Delhi.

The Congress legislators, who spent the night at Egalton Resort fearing BJP launching "Operation Kamal" to lure them, came to the protest venue by bus and joined their leaders.

"As far as swearing-in is concerned, we are not restraining it, but we are making it subject to the outcome of the case", NDTV quoted the bench as saying. The BJP has 104 MLAs in the House, eight short of the magic figure of 112.

The 94-year-old Jethmalani, widely acknowledged as among the most brilliant legal minds in the country and arguably the most senior advocate today, has now approached Chief Justice Dipak Misra seeking permission to appear the legal battle over Karnataka poll drama. He has sworn-in as the new CM as the successor to the Congress CM Siddaramaiah. Talking to media over the protests, Congress MLA Khader said, "All MLAs are in contact, the two MLAs who are not present here right now will come, I also just came back from Mangaluru".

At the moment, all eyes are on what will be the Supreme Court's verdict after perusal of the letters of MLAs of both teams - BJP and JD (S)-Congress.
