New Delhi, May 17 (IBNS) :  Veteran  lawyer Ram Jethmalani on Thursday moved the Supreme Court in his personal capacity against the  Karnataka governor's decision to invite the Bharatiya Janta Party to form Government in the state, reports said.

Jethmalani, in his petion, has said "it was a gross abuse of constitutional power" to invite a party without majority to form Government and seeks an urgent hearing on the matter.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that a three-judge special bench, led by Justice A K Sikri,  would re-assemble on Friday to consider Jethmalani's submission.

The bench led by Justice Sikri had earlier rejected a peition filed by the Congress and JD(S) and refused to put a stay on the swearing-in of BJP leader BS Yedyurappa as Chief Minister.

Hours after verdict, Yeddyurappa took oath as the Chief Minister  of Karnataka at the Raj Bhavan in Bengaluru on Thursday morning,

The top court, however,  did not dismiss the petition altogether and said that the  swearing-in and government formation in the state would be subject to the final outcome of the case before it.
