Protem Speaker, K.G.Bopaiah, who has been appointed by Governor Vala, is already inside the Karnataka Assembly Hall. Tight bandobast has been put in place inside and outside the Assembly premises. However, Bopaiah's appointment too has turned controversial as he is said to be from Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The Congress has petitioned the Supreme Court (SC) over the matter. They want a senior legislator, Deshpande to be the protem Speaker, as it is he who would decide the mode of voting in the floor test this evening.
