Bengaluru । Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa won the floor test in the Assembly by voice vote.
“Yediyurappa has won the confidence motion he moved by voice vote with more yes than no’s. As there is a request for division of votes by the opposition parties, he has proved that he has majority support in the House,” Speaker K.R. Ramesh Kumar declared in the House.
Earlier, Yediyurappa moved the motion to prove that he enjoyed majority legislative support in the House.
Winning the trust vote is, taking one more step closer towards a stable and strong administration. Will uphold the trust by ensuring transparent and accountable governance. I would like to thank the citizens, MLAs and each and every BJP Karyakartha for the trust placed in me.
