Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa wins vote of confidence

In a politically smart move aimed at preempting the possible revolt against his leadership from any quarters should a situation arise in future, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa had decided to seek trust vote on the floor of the Assembly.
Once a trust vote is taken, nobody can move no-confidence motion against the Chief Minister for the next six months.

In this way, the chief minister wanted to get a reprieve as well as a breather till December. This shrewd move should be seen in the backdrop of the potential threat by the mining barons Reddy brothers who could revolt against the leadership, should they be nailed by the Lokayukta or the Supreme Court.

Latest update has it that Yeddyurappa on Thursday (02-June-2011) proved his majority on the floor of the assembly and won his 4th trust vote, according to Times Now.

The Yeddyurappa government won a trust vote in the assembly by 119 votes in favour and none against amid walkout by the Congress and boycott by the JDS.
