The swearing-in ceremony was attended by top leaders of the state, including workers of the BJP. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP Chief Amit Shah gave the Karnataka swearing-in a skip.
Meanwhile, angry members of the congress are staging a protest at the Vidhan Soudha against the swearing in of BJP Leader BS Yeddyurappa as Chief Minister despite the BJP not winning more than half the number of seats in the just concluded Karnataka Assembly polls..
