Newly elected legislators return to the Eagleton Golf Resort after a joint protest by the Congress and the Janta Dal at Gandhi statue inside Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru

Security outside the Eagleston resort, where Congress MLAs are holed up, has been removed hours after BS Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister of Karnataka on Thursday.

Singhvi contended that while even imposition of President's Rule under Article 356 is subject to judicial review and wondered why the Governor's decision can not be subjected to judicial review.

The Supreme Court will hear tomorrow Senior lawyer and jurist Ram Jethmalani's plea against the Karnataka Governor's decision to invite the BJP to form government in the state. We will have to wait and see who among the members will be chosen into the Ministers' cabinet. "We condemn it", said DMK President MK Stalin. If it can't, Congress and Janata Dal (United) would get the chance to form the government.

Of the 77 MLAs with criminal cases - 42 are from BJP, 23 from Congress, 11 from JD (S) and 1 from BSP. Operation Kamala was the BJP's plan to form the majority after they fell short of a simple majority by three seats in the state Assembly elections in 2008.

"...now attempting to nominate an Anglo Indian MLA to fill nominated seat immediately to illegally raise their strength in the House with a view to outnumber the Petitioners who enjoy support of majority of the elected legislators being 116 in number". In comments by some leaders, including JD (S) leader HD Kumaraswamy, Operation Kamala was mentioned in the context to the tussle between the single largest party and its opponents to form the government in the state. Yeddyurappa was administered the oath of office and secrecy by the Governor at a ceremony at Raj Bhavan amid loud cheering by his supporters.

With Singhvi arguing that the Constitution gives immunity to the governor only for discharge of duties, the bench asked whether he wanted the court to scrutinise discretion of the governor when it does not have the letter of support given by the BJP.

In Byatarayanapura, on the outskirts of Bengaluru, Congress MLA and Minister Krishna Byre Gowda scrapped through with 5,671 more votes - a razor-thin margin considering both he and the BJP candidate polled in over one lakh votes. In 2018 election, Congress had emerged as the largest party but invited BJP to form the government. Jethmalani, who had taken retirement from law practice, told the bench that the Karnataka Governor's order is a "gross abuse of Constitutional power", reported IANS.
