Bengaluru, May 17 (IBNS):  Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) MLAs have staged a protest outside the Karnataka Vidhan Sabha after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader BS Yeddyurappa took oath as  Chief Minister on Thursday morning, media reports said.

With the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) announcing that  Yeddyurappa will take oath as  Chief Minister of Karnataka, the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) combine had approached the Supreme Court for an urgent hearing on Wednesday.

However, a bench of Justice AK Sikri, Justice A Bobde and Justice Ashok Bhushan, which heard the plea  in a midnight legal battle, refused to put a stay on Yeddyurappa's oath taking ceremony

The top court will hear the case next on Friday.

Governor Vajubhai Vala gave BJP a period of 15 days to prove majority, said reports.

The BJP, which secured 104 seats, is short of the majority mark (113).

However, the Congress and JD(S) combine are well over the majority mark in a 224-member Karnataka assembly. While the Congress has 78 seats, the JD(S) bagged 38 seats.
