BJP's BS Yeddyurappa arrives to take oath as Karnataka chief minister at Raj Bhavan in Bengaluru on Thursday

BJP's BS Yeddyurappa took oath as Karnataka Chief Minister on May 17, however, the drama is far from over in the aftermath of the fractured mandate delivered by the people of Karnataka.

Its state leader, BS Yeddyurappa, was sworn in on Thursday and now has 15 days to prove he can command a majority.

The order came hours before the swearing-in ceremony in Bangalore, where Yeddyurappa, 75, is slated to become chief minister of the state for the second time, even as the Congress-JD (S) combine has been claiming a majority with support of 117 MLAs, against BJP's 104.

However, the Congress, which tied up with the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) to keep the BJP out of power cried foul and moved the Supreme Court against the "encounter of Constitution".
