Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa today moved a vote of confidence seeking to prove majority of his three-day old government in the Assembly. This proposal was passed by voice vote and the BJP government proved a majority.
He said winning the trust vote is taking one more step closer towards a stable and strong administration.
In his remarks, the Karnataka CM said he will uphold the trust by ensuring transparent and accountable governance.
Yediyurappa said he would not indulge in ‘politics of vengeance’ and believed in the ‘forget and forgive principle’.
He said the administrative machinery had collapsed and his priority was to bring it back on track.
Yediyurappa took oath of office on July 26 after the fall of the Congress-JDS government. Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar took action while disallowing 17 rebel MLAs. In this way, to prove majority, the figure of 104 was needed in the 224-member assembly. Together with an Independent, Yeddyurappa has the support of 106 MLAs.
