Bengaluru, May 18 (IANS) After the Supreme Court ordered a Karnataka Assembly floor test on Saturday, Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa on Friday said he is confident of winning the required majority.
“We welcome the Supreme Court order of floor test at 4 p.m. on Saturday. We are confident of proving our majority,” Yeddyurappa told reporters here.
The apex court’s order for floor test comes a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader took oath as the Chief Minister.
With the BJP winning 104 seats in the May 12 Assembly election held in 222 segments, it fell eight short of the 112 halfway mark to win a simple majority.
Congress and Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S), which formed a post-poll alliance, have won 78 and 37 seats respectively.
