Karnataka floor test: Congress-JD(S) MLAs arrive in Bengaluru

From an overnight trip from Hyderabad, the bus carrying Karnataka Congress and JD(S) legislators reached Bengaluru in the early morning.

At 4 pm, BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa, who was sworn in on Thursday as Chief Minister of a minority government in Karnataka, has to take a trust vote.

 

On Friday, the Supreme Court drastically slashed to 24 hours the time he has to win over more lawmakers. Mr Yeddyurappa’s lawyer Mukul Rohatgi, the former top lawyer for the central government, asked for a week but the court rejected it.
