The Karnataka Elections has been following a rollercoaster ride since May 15. It was hard to stay up with the developments which took everyone by surprise. Things took a downturn after the governor of Karnataka, Valubhai Vala called in BS Yeddyurappa to be sworn in as the new chief minister of the state.
The combination of Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) made a plea to the Supreme Court which challenged the governor’s decision to get the BJP to form a government, and also to stay Yeddyurappa’s swearing-in. Here’s a timeline of how things happened.
