Karnataka: Yeddyurappa places in SC letters sent to Governor

Yeddyurappa told a special bench headed by Justice A K Sikri that being the single largest party the BJP was the "mandate of people" of the state who have thrown out the Congress.

BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa today placed before the Supreme Court the letters he had sent to Governor Vajubhai Vala in which he had staked claim to form the government in Karnataka.

The Supreme court is hearing a petition moved by the Congress-JDS combine challenging the governor's decision to invite the BJP to form the government.

Yeddyurappa, who was sworn in as the chief minister of Karnataka yesterday, told a special bench headed by Justice A K Sikri that being the single largest party the BJP was the "mandate of people" of the state who have thrown out the Congress.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Yeddyurappa, told the bench that there was no pre-poll alliance between the Congress and JDS and they have formed an "unholy alliance" after the elections.

In the May 12 polls, BJP emerged as the single largest party with 104 members, while Congress secured 78, the JD(S) 37 and others three.
