Yedurappa, The Mastermind Behind the Karnataka Crisis Set to Become CM

Despite postponing floor test and buying time of over 5 days, amid deadlines given by the Governor to finish the trust vote, the coalition failed to lure back the rebels — thirteen from the Congress and 3 from JD(S) — who left the flock since July 6, triggering the most recent crisis once the BJP won 25 of 28 seats in Lok Sabha elections. Congress  was solely able to convert one MLA — Congress leader Ramalinga Reddy — to withdraw his resignation, and stop 2 independent legislators, H Nagesh and R Shankar, from attending to the Assembly for the trust vote Tuesday.

"It is success of democracy. folks were uninterested with Kumaraswamy government. i would like to assure individuals of Karnataka that a brand new era of development can begin now," exclaimed state BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa, who is about to be the Chief Minister for the fourth time. "It's the success of people of Karnataka. it is the finish of an era of corrupt & unholy alliance. we tend to promise a stable governance to the folks of Karnataka," the state BJP tweeted.

Although the H D Kumaraswamy-led JD(S)-Congress coalition government in Karnataka has fallen once it lost the floor test, the blade of disqualification still hangs on the heads on the thirteen rebel legislators. Congress leaders were assured that they might be disqualified in a day or 2, which might make sure that none of them might become a minister within the new government. Sources suggested the party was keenly looking at the BJP’s next move before deciding its next course of action.

Meanwhile, the BJP general assembly party is about to meet today before its MLAs move to Governor Vajubhai Vala to stake claim. Yeddyurappa is predicted to return to Delhi once he meets the Governor to carry discussions with prime leaders of the party. If he's to become Chief Minister, the BJP national leadership would need to take care of many different problems together with some inside the party. the majority is thin, with help of rebels from the Opposition. and therefore the leadership also will need to balance internal equations, particularly with former Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, former Deputy CMs K S Eshwarappa and R Ashoka.
