Bangalore, Nov 18 (UNI) Cloud of uncertainty looms large over the BJP's floor test tomorrow, with JD(S) insisting on its coalition partner to sign the 12-point MoU before the floor test.

Party incharge for Karnataka Yashwant Sinha, after the BJP Legislature Party meeting here tonight, told reporters that he was absolutely sure that BJP would clear the floor test tomorrow.

''Everything will become clear tomorrow. I am sure that Mr Yeddyurappa will prove his majority,'' he said .

The JD(S) Legislature Party, which met earlier in the day with Mr Deve Gowda in the chair, had authorised leaders H D Kumaraswamy, Merajudin Patel, M P Prakash and D Manjunath to chalk out the future course of action if the BJP refused to sign the MoU.

Former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy said his party was prepared for 'any eventuality' if the BJP failed to sign the pact.

Mr Prakash said the party legislators would meet before attending the Assembly session and take a final decision.

However, Mr Kumaraswamy, who met Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa immediately after the JDLP meeting changed track and said there was no change in party's stand to support the BJP government.

Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, while expressing confidence that he would win the confidence vote, said the induction of JD(S) ministers into his ministry would take place on November 21 as decided.

Meanwhile, BJP state president Sadananda Gowda said the legislators were issued whip for attending tomorrow's session and were asked to stay put in the Assembly Hall till the proceedings were over.

He said the conditions laid down in the MoU and the deadline set by the JD(S) for the BJP were all media creation.
