Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who was present on the occasion, congratulated the new Chief Justice.

The Chief Minister said he would discuss the much-talked Bill against cow slaughter with President Pratibha Patel on Monday. “The State government will focus on development activities.

The new Chief Justice will be a part of the judicial proceedings from Monday.
