Amid murmurs of BS Yediyurappa stepping down as CM, Governor Thawar Chand Gehlot, who left for Delhi on July 19, returned to Bengaluru on Sunday.
While talk of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa stepping down gains ground, Karnataka Governor Thawar Chand Gehlot is noticeably not in Bengaluru.
Former Union Minister Thawar Chand Gehlot will take oath as the Governor of Karnataka at the Raj Bhavan on Sunday morning.
The sources said he will be received at Raj Bhavan with a guard of honour and a welcome meal has been planned at the Raj Bhavan for the Governor-designate on Saturday afternoon.
The reshuffle is likely to involve a good number of ministers of state ranks besides filling a few Cabinet berths.
