Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur has asked the Yediyurappa government to prove its majority on the floor of Legislative Assembly by November 20, three days before the floor test sought by the Chief Minister.
"The Governor has asked the chief minister to prove the majority of the government within eight of days of assuming the office," a Raj Bhavan source told PTI on Tuesday.
Yediyurappa and four others were sworn-in on Monday, in an all BJP affair, as coalition partner JDS stuck to its stand that all its ministerial nominees, including deputy Chief Minister would take the oath in one go, likely on November 21.
Yediyurappa had stated on Monday after the maiden cabinet meeting chaired by him that a decision had been taken to request the Governor to convene a one-day special session on November 23 to enable the government prove its majority.
