According to sources, after successfully presenting the budget on February 8, it was unnecessary to either move a confidence motion or dissolve the House. Shettar is believed to be playing with both options with the party's central leadership. According to a senior minister, neither of the ideas of dissolution of the assembly or seeking a trust vote make any difference to the ministers or MLAs.
It was also learnt that the state leaders of the BJP were not discussing the issue with everybody fearing that the party secrets could get revealed in the rival camp of BS Yeddyurappa.
Meanwhile, a BJP legislator said after a group photo session that it indicated that the term of the current legislators was over. He said they were in the election mode from here onwards.
