Karnataka second trust vote today

By The Assam Tribune

BANGALORE, Oct 13 � In a new twist to the political battle in Karnataka, the BJP government will seek a second vote of confidence in the Assembly tomorrow but its result will be subject to the High Court orders on the Speaker�s disqualification of 16 MLAs, reports PTI.

The second trial of strength for Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who won a controversial trust vote on Monday, comes after he accepted Governor HR Bhardwaj�s call for a fresh vote yesterday.

The first saffron government in the South, which was reduced to a minority after 16 MLAs, including 11 of the BJP, withdrew support, may sail through in tomorrow�s vote with the support of about 106 MLAs while the Opposition � JD(S) 73 and Congress 28 � has the support of 101 in a House with an effective strength of 208.

One Independent MLA, who was with the Opposition on Monday, could now now be backing BJP, sources in BJP claimed.

But there is uncertainty over the result of tomorrow�s vote with the High Court today ordering that �proceedings in the Assembly tomorrow are ordered to be subject to the decision on the writ petitions (against Speaker K G Bopaiah disqualifying 16 MLAs) before the High Court�.

The Court had yesterday reserved prders in the case relating to 11 BJP MLAs and adjourned proceedings in the case of other 5 Independent MLAs to Oct 18.

Lawyers said that today�s order may mean that if the Court upholds the Speaker�s decision on disqualification then the status quo after tomorrow�s vote may remain.
