BENGALURU — Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala May 16 invited Bharatiya Janata Party legislative party leader B.S. Yeddyurappa to form the new government and take oath as chief minister May 17, a party spokesman said.

"We received a communique from the Raj Bhavan, inviting Yeddyurappa to form the government and take oath at 9:30 a.m.," BJP state unit spokesman Vamanacharya told IANS here.

Only Yeddyurappa will take oath at a simple ceremony in the Glass House on the lawns of the Raj Bhavan in the city center amid tight security.

"The governor has invited party's leaders and newly-elected legislators to the oath-taking ceremony," added Vamanacharya.

There was, however, no official communique from the Raj Bhavan to the media as of the filing of this report.
