Bengaluru: The Karnataka BJP today welcomed the Supreme Court order on the floor test, asserting that Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa would prove his majority in the assembly with the support of over 120 MLAs.

“The Supreme Court has ordered to prove majority in the assembly tomorrow at 4 pm. BJP welcomes this. We are confident that tomorrow at 4 pm BJP legislators and those supporting it will prove majority,” Karnataka BJP General Secretary Shobha Karandlaje told reporters here.

She said, “The BJP under the leadership of Yeddyurappa has worked enough to prove the majority. With confidence tomorrow at 4 pm we will prove our majority.” The Supreme Court today ordered that a floor test be held in the Karnataka Assembly at 4 pm tomorrow to ascertain whether newly-appointed BJP Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa enjoys majority.

Responding to a question as to how the BJP would prove majority, Karandlaje said, “Already many people are in touch with us, more than 120 MLAs are supporting us. BJP will prove its majority tomorrow.”  Yeddyurappa was sworn-in as the chief minister yesterday.

Governor Vajubhai Vala had given 15 days to Yeddyurappa prove his majority in the Assembly. The BJP has 104 MLAs in the House. The Congress won 78 seats, while the JD(S) was victorious in 37 constituencies. Polling was held in 222 of the state’s 224 seats, for which results were declared on May 15, delivering a hung House.
