Union Minister Prakash Javadekar, who was also the BJP’s Karnataka poll in-charge, on Friday expressed confidence that the B S Yeddyurappa government will prove its majority in the state Assembly on Saturday.”BJP is ready and confident of winning trust vote in Karnataka. We will prove our majority on the floor of the House,” he tweeted.His tweet came after the Supreme Court ordered that a floor test be held in the Karnataka Assembly at 4 pm on Saturday to ascertain whether newly appointed BJP Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa enjoys majority in the state.The BJP, which emerged as the single largest party with 104 seats in Karnataka Assembly, was invited by Governor Vajubhai Vala to form the government despite the JD(S)-Congress combine staking claim by citing the support of 117 MLAs.The majority mark is 112 seats. Elections were held for all but two of the 224 seats.Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister in Bengaluru on Wednesday. Governor Vala had given him 15 days’ time to prove majority in the House.The Supreme Court on Friday ordered a floor test in the Karnataka Assembly at 4 pm on Saturday, reducing the 15-day window given by the Governor to BJP Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa to prove majority.”Let the House decide and the best course would be floor test,” a three-judge bench headed by Justice A K Sikri said.The top court said the Pro tem speaker will take decisions in accordance with the law on the issue of floor test.The apex court also directed the Karnataka government and the Governor not to nominate any MLA from the Anglo-Indian community to participate in the floor test tomorrow.The bench also asked the newly elected government not to take any major policy decision till it proves majority in the House.It also ordered authorities including the DGP to ensure law and order outside the Karnataka Assembly.The apex court made it clear that it would deal with the constitutionality of the Governor’s letter inviting Yeddyurappa to form the government later.The bench said ultimately the question is about majority which has to be proved in the floor test.
