Karnataka Chief Minister changed again

Jagadish Shettar, backed by BS Yeddyurappa, will be formally elected as the BJP legislative party leader on Tuesday to formally replace DV Sadananada Gowda as the state’s new Chief Minister. 

The BJP legislative party meeting will be held tomorrow during which party MLAs will endorse the high command’s decision to appoint Shettar as the new chief minister. Shettar is likely to be sworn in on Wednesday. 

He will be the third Chief Minister in the present BJP government which came to power in 2008. Yeddyurappa, who led the party to victory then, had to step down after he was indicted by the Lokayukta in a graft case. Gowda had taken over from him in August last year.
