Bengaluru: The BJP also upped the ante, demanding that the chief minister seek a trust vote on Monday, a day prior to the Supreme Court hearing on the petition of 10 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs who have resigned. 

BJP sources revealed they are working on bringing in five-six more dissidents to topple the government as part of B.S.Yeddyurappa's strategy to ensure that a total of 16 Congress and JD(S) MLAs abstain during the trust vote and the two Independent MLAs vote against it, which gives it a total of 18 votes against the Kumaraswamy government.

 

“Another three MLAs are ready to resign in the middle of session, and maybe two more," a die-hard supporter of Mr Yeddyurappa told this newspaper. “We will defeat the trust vote by more than 6-7 votes,” he said confidently.
