Bangalore, Nov 17: Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president D V Sadananda Gouda today expressed confidence that notwithstanding the conditions set by Janata Dal National President H D Deve Gowda, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa will win the confidence vote in the 225-member Karantaka assembly on Monday. Speaking to the sources here Mr Gouda reminded that JD(S) after forging re-alliance with BJP had extended unconditional support to form the next government and also communicated it to Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur.
Blaming media for creating unnecessary confusion over the issue of Deve Gowda's conditions and reported threats to withdraw JD(S) support to the government state BJP chief categorically denied that cracks had developed between two coalition partners even before seeking crucial confidence of vote by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa.
Stating that he was not aware of any pre-conditions set by former prime minister H D Deve Gowda to form the government and sign it before seeking vote of confidence, Mr Gouda exuded confidence that the coalition government led by B S Yeddyurappa would complete its term. Brushing aside media reports that crisis awaits for new-coalition when Yeddyurappa seeks vote of confidence he said it was baseless. "When all legislators who were supporting B S Yeddyurappa submitted individual letters affirming their faith on BJP and having elected Yeddyurappa as their joint legislature party leader, where is the question of threat to coalition government" he questioned.
