Karnataka Elections 2018: Supreme Court suggests floor test should be conducted tomorrow

While hearing the plea of Congress-JD(S) against Karnataka Governor the Supreme Court said  ‘It is just a number game, one who enjoys the majority should be invited to form the government.’ In Supreme Court, Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri said, ‘floor test seems to be the best option.’

The apex court also observed that as BS Yeddyurappa has claimed support and BJP is a single largest party, there could be two probabilities. Whether Governor’s decision has to be tested or a floor test has to be held on Saturday.

While arguing Abhishek Manu Singhvi told Supreme Court, ‘Yeddyurappa claimed to support, but he does not have letters of support from these MLAs or it is only his oral submissions.’ And also have submitted an application saying that Congress-JD(S) is ready for floor test tomorrow (Saturday).

The Supreme court is hearing a petition moved by the Congress-JDS combine challenging the governor’s decision to invite the BJP to form a government. Yeddyurappa, who was sworn in as the chief minister of Karnataka yesterday, told a special bench headed by Justice A K Sikri that being the single largest party the BJP was the “mandate of people” of the state who have thrown out the Congress.
