Bengaluru, July 28 (MNN) Basavaraj Bommai was sworn in as the new Chief Minister of Karnataka at the Raj Bhavan here on Wednesday by Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot.

Bommai, a former Home Minister in the Yediurappa Cabinet, was chosen as the new CM at a Karnataka BJP Legislature Party meeting on Tuesday 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 Ministers. He had joined the BJP in February 2008. He was earlier with the Janata Dal.

Son of a former Chief Minister SR Bommai, the new CM is a confidant of outgoing Chief Minister BS Yediurappa and also comes from the politically influential Lingayat community. He said he would seek guidance from Yediurappa.

Yediurappa had resigned as the Chief Minister of the southern state on Monday. The Karnataka Governor 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,” Yediurappa 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.
