Opinion: Should Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala resign now? 

This weekend I would hate to be Vajubhai Vala, the Governor of Karnataka. Not only did he make a wilful and terrible mistake by swearing-in BS Yeddyurappa as chief minister, when the latter clearly did not have a majority behind him but, additionally, Yeddyurappa could not even face a vote of confidence in the assembly. So hopeless were his chances he instead resigned. That leaves the Karnataka Governor with a lot of egg splattered across his face.
