K’taka floor test: ‘Missing’ Cong MLA Pratap Gowda arrives at Assembly

B S Yeddyurappa will face a floor test on Saturday, barely 55 hours into office, after a Supreme Court order truncated the 15-day window the Governor gave him to prove majority, a hurdle he can clear only by engineering defections, or making MLAs of the JD(S)-Congress combine to resign or abstain from voting. The apex court has fixed the time for the floor test at 4 pm on Saturday.

Experts said the BJP had two options to make the numbers: Get 16 Opposition MLAs to resign or abstain from voting, or secure the defection of seven legislators. Resignation of 16 lawmakers would bring down the number required for victory during the trust vote to 103, one less than what the BJP has.
