Yeddyurappa geared up for show of strength today


Bangalore, Jun 2: If there is one Chief Minister who has had to weather all the political storms and the countless allegations thrown on him along with a State Governor who was out for his blood, the obvious choice will be Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa who will win it hands down. Thursday, will see him prove his majority in the Assembly in an apparent move to silence his critics.

The decision was made following a BJP legislature party meeting on Wednesday, revealed the BJP"s State Unit Party President, K S Eswarappa. The move will see the CM move a suo moto motion to seek a vote of confidence in the Assembly. The Assembly will begin a 10-day sitting on Thursday which will see Yeddyurappa move a one-line resolution stating that "this House express confidence in the ministry led by him."

After proving his majority in June 2008 after a close shave by getting the support of six independents, he had to face the acid test yet again in Oct 2010. The floor test on Oct 11, 2010 drew flak from Governor HR Bharadwaj after the role of the independent rebel MLAs was questioned.

But after all the blows that the BJP government has been suffering, Yeddyurappa is all set to prove his majority once again. Eswarappa commented, “To clear doubts among people, the BJP has decided to prove its majority on the Floor of the House."

This will act as an apparent snub to the Congress in the Opposition"s Chair and the JD(S) who have been accusing the CM of countless corruption charges and demanding his resignation. Eswarappa also urged the critics to be part of the Assembly session and raise issues against the ruling government.
