Bengaluru, July 26 (MNN) Basavaraj Bommai would be the new Chief Minister of Karnataka.

A decision on the name of the former Home Minister in the Yediurappa Cabinet was taken at a Karnataka BKP Legislature Party meeting during the evening at the Capitol hotel in the state capital, where party leaders Dharmendra Pradhan and G Kishan Reddy were central observers.

Bommai also held the portfolios of Law, Parliamentary Affairs and Legislation in the outgoing Council of Minsiters.

Son of a former Chief Minister SR Bommai, the new CM-designate is said to be a confidant of outgoing Chief Minister BS Yediurappa and also comes from the politically influential Lingayat community.

He will take oath of office at the Raj Bhavan here on Wednesday afternoon.

Yediurappa had resigned as the Chief Minister of the southern state on Monday. Karnataka Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot had accepted his resignation and asked him to continue till his successor was chosen.

“…with the support of the people of the state… and with the cooperation of all, I am satisfied that all the legislators have made a concerted effort to give the party a two-year pro-development administration,” he had tweeted.

Yediyurappa had said that it was an honour to serve the southern state for the past two years. “I am humbled and sincerely thank the people of the state for giving me the opportunity to serve them,” he added.
