Bengaluru: Karnataka politics came full circle on Monday, a full 11 days after former CM H.D Kumaraswamy moved a confidence motion in the state assembly on July 18  - which he ultimately lost - with his successor, BJP leader Mr B.S. Yeddyurappa winning the trust vote, bringing the curtains down on a tumultuous phase of intrigue, acrimonious exchanges, defections and a not so subtle display of money and muscle power.

Sources said the expansion of the Yediyurappa cabinet is now likely to happen by the weekend after getting the nod of the BJP central leadership. Soon after the new Speaker's election that has been set for Wednesday, Mr Yediyurappa is expected to fly to Delhi to meet PM Narendra Modi, BJP National President Amit Shah and working president J.P. Nadda with a list of probables.   

 

Speaker K.R. Ramesh Kumar who gave a landmark ruling disqualifying 17 Congress and JD(S) MLAs, resigned from his post after the trust vote of Yediyurappa, amid reports that the ruling BJP was mulling moving a no-confidence motion against him.
