BENGALURU: Basavaraj Bommai was sworn in as Karnataka CM on Wednesday, thus bringing down the curtain on weeks of political uncertainty in the state.
Keen to dispel any impression that ex-CM BS Yeddiyurappa would be backseat-driving his government, Bommai categorically said: “I will not be a rubber stamp CM.” While he would seek Yeddiyurappa’s counsel and draw on his expertise, he would work to get the “stamp of approval from the people”.
Earlier in the day, Bommai called on Yeddiyurappa at his house and sought his blessing. He later held a one-man cabinet meeting with top officials and announced a slew of schemes. This includes a scholarship programme for farmers’ children at a cost of Rs 1,000 crore.
His next big challenge will be to expand his Cabinet. “I’m going to Delhi on Friday to meet the BJP top brass, including PM Modi, and will discuss all issues,” he said.
