BS Yeddyurappa, the BJP's CM candidate says that during the legislature party meeting which will be held shortly, the leader, will be elected. "From there we will go to Raj Bhavan immediately. We will stake claim to form the govt. Most probably we will ask the governor to give us time tomorrow," Yeddyurappa said.
Union minister Prakash Javadekar, one of the three observers sent by the Centre to the Karnataka said the people want a BJP govt and the party would ensure it happens. "Anyone can create unnatural tensions, but people of Karnataka are with us. After the meeting, we will take necessary steps. This attempt made by Congress to make a backdoor entry is not appreciated," Javadekar said.
Union Ministers Dharmendra Pradhan and JP Nadda are the other two observers for the Karnataka.
