The Supreme Court on Friday ordered a floor test for BJP government in Karnataka at 4 pm tomorrow in the assembly, within a day of BS Yeddyurappa being sworn in as Chief Minister. The apex court also rejected the BJP council Mukul Rohatgi’s plea for the test to be conducted on Monday.

The current CM of Karnataka, Yeddyurappa said, “Will discuss with Chief secretary and call for assembly session tomorrow. We are 100% confident that we will prove full majority.”

The lawyer of the case, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, also member of Congress and Rajya Sabha member from West Bengal said, “SC has delivered a historic verdict, many important directions have been given, one of them being that floor test has to be conducted at 4 pm tomorrow under a protem speaker.”

The key highlights from the verdict are:

  • Floor Test Must Be Conducted At 4pm Tomorrow

  • Protem Speaker to decide the mode of test

  • No Secret Ballot

  • Govt shall not nominate the Anglo Indian Representative

  • Government shall not take any major policy decisions
