“The Moment that crores of Kannadigas are awaiting is here. Sri BS Yedyurappa will take oath as chief minister of Karnataka tomorrow morning at 9.30 AM at Raj Bhawan.

The movement to build our Suvarna Karnataka has begun. #CMBSY,” the Twitter handle of BJP’s Karnataka unit tweeted.

The tweet, which was later deleted, came even as the governor Vajubhai Vala is yet to take a decision on the future of government in the state.

However, an hour later the handle re-tweeted the same message with a different time for the oath-taking ceremony.

Earlier in the day, JD(S) and Congress leaders had met the Governor in Bengaluru and submitted a list claiming support of 117 MLAs with a plea to consider their claim for government formation.
