Irked by the decision, Congress and JD (S) filed a petition against this decision in Supreme Court late on Wednesday night. Now congress is reduced to 20 MLAs.

Justices A.K. Sikri and Ashok Bhushan: "Does that mean all the suitcase exchange is possible before they are sworn in?"

Yeddyruppa took oath as planned but on Friday at 10.30 a.m. when the apex court hears the matter again, he will have to produce the two letters dated May 15 and 16 he has written to Governor Vajubhai Vala to stake his claim for government formation. The Vijayanagar MLA has told a senior Congress leader attempting to protect the Congress MLAs from poaching that he would like to stay away from the Congress group until it becomes clear which group is in a position to prove its majority.

But the question is how? Hours after Yeddyurappa - a green shawl draped over his trade mark white shirt - drove to the state Secretariat Vidhana Soudha, next to the Raj Bhavan, legal eagle Ram Jethmalani also moved the Supreme Court in his personal capacity against the decision of Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala to invite the B JP to form the government in Karnataka. Voting was not held in two of the 224 constituencies on May 12. Congress fell to 78 seats from 122 in the previous election. Defection is if one member crosses over to another party.

In the interesting poll battle, what helped BJP inch closer to the magical figure was the strategy of party President Amit Shah and the effective booth-level management. After taking oath, he had said, "Despite being rejected by the people, the Congress and JD (S) have formed an unholy alliance". The Congress-JDS combine has 117 MLAs, five more than the required majority, while the BJP has just 104 MLAs, eight short of the majority. The Sarkaria Commission had specifically ruled that in the event of inviting the single largest party to form the government, there should be evidence that it is being supported by others and independents to demonstrate a majority.

The early election is set to accelerate Turkey's transition to a new presidential system approved in a referendum a year ago . May said her government was taking action "where we have evidence of terrorist activity, of criminal activity".

Speaking to reporters, Siddaramaiah said: "Yeddyurappa first needs to furnish the list proving his majority in the House". "We had soon after the declaration of election results stake claim to form a government, however, we were not invited by the governor". "Elementary common sense and arithmetic go against this kind of giving of time", Singhvi said.

"The people have given maximum seats to the BJP".

Venugopal intervened: "Everything is reversible".

"It is unheard of to give 15 days for floor test. Why wait for 15 days?" Incidentally, the duo which answered the call were not new to post-midnight proceedings; they were also present in July 2015, when the SC opened its doors at 3 am to hear a final plea seeking a stay on the planned execution of Yakub Memon.

Sources in the BJP say that they have managed to lure seven elected members as of now - Anand Singh from Vijayanagara, Pratapgouda Patil from Ranebennur and Humnabad MLA Rajasekhar Patil.
