BJP MLAs walk out of assembly, Kumaraswamy wins floor test

The long-awaited floor test in the Karnataka assembly was held today. HD Kumaraswamy and his coalition government have won the floor test with 117 votes cast for them. According to reports, all the MLAs od the BJP staged a walkout before the floor test.

JD(S) leader and newly sworn-in CM of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy moved a motion of confidence in the assembly today. Earlier, Congress leader Ramesh Kumar was appointed speaker of the assembly. BJP had reportedly withdrawn the nomination of its candidate Suresh Kumar and Yeddyurappa had stated that they had withdrawn the nomination to maintain the dignity of the post, they want the speaker to be elected unanimously. After the motion of confidence, leader of the opposition BS Yeddyurappa in his speech declared that from now on his struggle will be against the corrupt father-son duo of HD Devegowda and HD Kumaraswamy.

Yeddyurappa asserted his commitment to the farmers of the state and stated that the BJP will start statewide bandh if Kumaraswamy does not waive of farmer loans. Yeddyurappa has given a 24 hour time for the new state government to waive off farmer loans and declared that the BJP will organise state-wide bandh on Monday.
