Before K’taka trust vote, SC to decide on Interim Speaker
Whether BJP lawmaker KG Bopaiah is qualified to be the pro-tem speaker when Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa takes a trust vote in the Karnataka Assembly will be heard by the Supreme Court on Saturday morning. The three-judge bench, which had taken up the petition against Yeddyurappa's appointment, will start the hearing at 10.30 am, just half-an-hour before the Assembly meets in Bengaluru. The trust vote is to happen later in the day, at 4 pm. Bopaiah has a dubious record of passing biased disqualification orders in the Assembly.
