Yeddyurappa confident of winning vote
Bangalore, Nov 18 (UNI) Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa today said he was confident of proving his majority in the one-day Assembly session tomorrow.
Talking to newspersons after a meeting with JD(S) leader and former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy here, Mr Yeddyurappa said there was ''no threat'' to the six-day-old BJP-led government in the state.
The statement came in the wake of the JD (S) insisting on the BJP to sign a 12-point 'MoU' before seeking the confidence vote.
Mr Yeddyurappa, however, refused to divulge the details of the meeting and the 'MoU' issue.
Mr Kumaraswamy, who also spoke after the meeting, said there was ''no change'' in the JD(S)'s stand of supporting the BJP. ''Our Legislators will meet again in the morning before the session. There is no crisis between the two parties. The JD(S) ministers will join the ministry on November 21,'' he added.
This was contrary to his earlier statement after the JDSLP meeting that the ''conditions'' laid down by the JD(S) leadership were ''non-negotiable'' and the party was ready to face the consequences in the event of BJP refusing to sign the MoU.
Meanwhile, BJP political in-charge for Karnataka Yashwant Sinha arrived in the city amidst hectic political developments on the eve of Mr Yeddyurappa seeking the vote.
