The newly-elected Chief Minister of Karnataka BS Yediyurappa won a confidence motion on Monday, July 29, in a special session in the state assembly, which was called to prove the BJP government's majority.

In addition to this, Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar tendered his resignation soon after the vote. 

On Sunday, KR Ramesh Kumar had disqualified 14 more rebel Congress-JD(S) lawmakers. However, the disqualification had no impact on the trust vote. 

The BJP had issued a whip to all 105 legislators to attend the assembly meeting at 11 am today as Yediyurappa moved a vote of confidence to prove the majority. 

The Karnataka government, headed by HD Kumaraswamy, faced a massive downfall last Tuesday when the Congress-JD(S) coalition government lost the trust vote in the assembly, paving the way for Yediyurappa to swear-in as the state chief minister.

"Unfortunately, Yediyurappa has never been CM with people's mandate. Where's the mandate? You didn't have it in 2008, 2018 or even now. When he took oath there were 222 MLAs in House, where did BJP have 112 MLAs for majority? They had 105 seats. That is not mandate," Siddaramaiah said. 

He added, "We hope you (BS Yediyurappa) will be chief minister but there is no guarantee of that. You are with the rebels, can you give a stable government? It's impossible! I oppose this confidence motion because the reason is this government is unconstitutional and immoral."
