A letter by Governor Vala reads, ". you have been elected as the leader of the BJP legislative party of Karnataka. I am also in receipt of your letter dated 15th May 2018 staking claim to form the government."
 
The Governor also asked Yeddyurappa to indicate the date, time and the place for scheduling the swearing-in ceremony.
 
"I invite you to form the Government and be sworn in as the Chief Minister of Karnataka. I may also direct you that you would seek a vote of confidence on the floor of the House showing that you command the confidence of the House. This process shall be completed within fifteen days from the date of the assumption of your office as the Chief Minister of Karnataka," the letter further read.
 
Meanwhile, the Karnataka unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took to Twitter and said Yeddyurappa will take oath as the Chief Minister of Karnataka on Thursday morning at Raj Bhavan.
 
"The moment that crores of Kannadigas are awaiting is here. Sri @BSYBJP will take oath as Chief Minister of Karnataka tomorrow morning at 9.00 AM at Raj Bhavan. The movement to build our Suvarna Karnataka has started. #CMBSY," the BJP tweeted.5 days to prove his party's majority on th efloor of the Assembly house.
 
Earlier, Yeddyurappa asked the governor to allow him to take oath as chief minister as the party had emerged the single largest party.
 
Soon after he was elected leader of the BJP legislature party, Yeddyurappa drove to the Raj Bhavan here and handed him a letter about his unanimous election to the post.

Earlier in the day, Yeddyurappa said he was confident of forming the government.
 
He also said Independent MLA Shankar had submitted a letter offering his support to the BJP.
