Bangalore, Oct 11: Raising questions on the way the trust vote was won by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Karnataka, the Opposition Congress and JDS have sought the Governor's and the Centre's intervention into the matter.

The Opposition members along with the disqualified dissident MLAs made their way to the Raj Bhavan to meet Governor HR Bhardwaj after the trust vote on Monday, Oct 11 morning.

“We will demand the dismissal of the BJP Government with immediate effect. The Centre and President Pratibha Patil should intervene", JDS leader HD Kumaraswamy along with KPCC president RV Deshpande said.

“The trust vote moved by Chief Minister is illegal. He violated rules and regulations of the House. A government which had no majority wins the trust vote by voice vote flouting all norms," said Kumaraswamy, JD(S) leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister.

The BS Yeddyurappa government won the floor test after the Speaker K G Bopaiah disqualified 11 BJP MLAs and five Independent MLAs, effectively giving the BJP government a majority of 106.
