With the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) announcing that BS Yeddyurappa will take oath as the Chief Minister of Karnataka, the Congress party had approached the Supreme Court for an urgent hearing.

They have approached Chief Justice of India Dipak Mishra for an urgent hearing on Wednesday night itself.

A bench of Justice AK Sikri, Justice A Bobde and Justice Ashok Bhushan is hearing the case.

Ex-Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi is defending the BJP and Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta is advocating the union government in the case, report said.

In a major political turn, the Karnataka unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday evening announced that its leader BS Yeddyurappa will be taking oath as the chief minister of the south Indian state on Thursday after governor Vajubhai Vala invited the party to form government.
