President revokes Central rule in Karnataka
May 30, 2008 11:47 IST
Patil, who is at present on a visit to Shimla, signed the proclamation and sent it to the Union Home Ministry for issuing of requisite orders.
The signing of the proclamation comes ahead of the swearing-in of Bharatiya Janata Party's B S Yeddyruppa as Chief Minister of the state.
The President's rule, which had expired on May 19, was extended by another six months after a meeting of the Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] took a decision in this regard.
The elections in the state were held in three phases on May 10, 16 and 22 and the BJP emerged as the single largest party.
