Bangalore, Nov 18 (UNI) Even as first ever BJP led government in the South seeks the floor test tomorrow, cloud of uncertainty still hanged over it with JD(S) pushing its decision of extending the support to the last minute.

While the JD(S) insisted that the coalition partner should sign the 12-point MoU, BJP virtually chose to ignore it. Party incharge for Karnataka Yashwant Sinha Sinha said that he was 'absolutely sure' that BJP will win the trust vote on the morrow.

"Everything will become clear tomorrow. I am Absolutely sure that Mr Yeddyurappa will prove his majority and this government will continue," he said after the BJP legislature party meeting held here tonight.

The JD(S)LP which met earlier in the day with Mr Gowda in the chair, passed an unanimous resolution authorising leaders H D Kumaraswamy, Party State President Merajudin Patel, M P Prakash and D Manjunath to chalk out future programme of action if BJP refused to sign the MoU.

Emerging out from the JDLP meeting former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy had claimed that his party was prepared for 'any eventuality' if BJP failed to sign the pact.

Party leader M P Prakash said that party legislators would meet before attending the Assembly session and take a final decision.

However Mr H D Kumaraswamy, who met Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa immediately after the JDLP meeting changed track and said that 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 November 21 as per the earlier programme.

Meanwhile, BJP state unit president Sadananda Gowda said that 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 claimed that the conditions laid down in the MoU and the deadline set by the JD(S) was all media creation.
