will prove our majority, says Yeddyurappa

 

The supreme court of Friday ordered the Bhartia Janta Party leader Yeddyurappa to take floor test which would be held at 4.00 pm on Saturday.

“The SC also said that it will resume hearing on Congress’ petition today. The top court has directed that letters sent by BJP to Governor Vajubhai Vala for government formation be placed before it” media reports said.

The court has directed the DGPs to ensure the safety of all lawmakers. “The government shall not nominate an Anglo-Indian till floor test concludes,” SC said.

It further directed that the oath will be administered to all MLAs before the floor test and said that Chief Minister will not take any major policy decision until the floor test.

Meanwhile the SC directed the pro tem Speaker to decide the mode of floor test.

However, the police have detained Congress leaders who had taken out a rally to the Raj Bhavan in Bengaluru to protest the Governor’s decision to invite BJP to form the government.
