K’taka trust vote: All eyes on Lingayat MLAs of Cong-JD(S)
All eyes will be on Lingayat MLAs when Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa takes the floor test in the Karnataka Assembly on Saturday evening. A few Lingayat MLAs claimed that there was deep-rooted discontent within the community over Congress party’s pre-election gamble to divide them. Meanwhile, Yeddyurappa has claimed that the BJP has the support of 120 MLAs and exuded the confidence of winning the floor test. It is learnt that he is trying to lure Congress and JD(S) MLAs of Lingayat community as he himself is a Lingayat.
