Karnataka Guv may ask CM to prove majority

 Jagadish Shettar
Bangalore, Jan 25: Karnataka Governor HR Bhardwaj is likely to ask Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar to seek a vote of confidence on the floor of the House in the wake of 13 MLAs from the Bharatiya Janata Party announcing their decision to quit the Assembly. The chief minister is meeting Bhardwaj at 3 pm today.

These MLAs from former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa's camp had met the governor to inform him of their intention to quit after they failed to submit resignation letter to the assembly speaker.

The Karnataka Assembly is holding its budget session from Feb 4 and Yeddyurappa is determined to prevent the chief minister from presenting the state budget and thus bring down the government. The budget is important for Shettar and the BJP as they can announce populist measures and go for elections.
