Bengaluru: Ahead of the crucial confidence vote to be sought by Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, BJP State President BS Yeddyurappa on Thursday exuded confidence that the motion would be defeated.

“I don’t know what their party (coalition partners Congress and JD-S) is going to do but we are 105. They will be less than 100. 100% we are confident that the confidence motion will be defeated,” Yeddyurappa told reporters at the Vidhana Soudha, which houses both the houses of Legislature.

To a question whether Kumaraswamy would resign on Thursday with numbers stacked against him, Yeddyurappa said, “Let us wait and see.”

Regarding the Kagwad Congress MLA Srimant B Patil who has reportedly gone incommunicado, Yeddyurappa said he had no information about him.

All eyes are set on the floor test as 16 MLAs of the coalition government had resigned from the assembly and two independent MLAs withdrew their support to it.

One of the rebel MLAs Ramalinga Reddy, however, relented on Thursday saying he had decided to stay on with the party, vote in favour of the government and continue as MLA.

The Speaker too has a vote. On the other hand, BJP has 107 votes, including two Independents backing the party.

The former Karnataka chief minister asserted that the Congress-JD(S)coalition government has lost majority and its collapse was imminent.

In a surprise move amid the existential crisis faced by Karnataka government, Kumaraswamy had announced in the State Assembly that he had voluntarily decided to seek a trust vote to end the “confusion” caused by resignations of rebel MLAs and requested the Speaker to fix a time for the same.

Yeddyurappa said that the Chief Minister “must move the confidence motion on Monday itself. Monday morning at the business advisory committee meeting, we will advise that the Chief Minister’s commitment should be fulfilled,” he said.
