BJP urges Guv to direct Speaker to take up voting on
confidence motion Thursday itself
Bengaluru, Jul 18 (PTI) The BJP has appealed to Governor
Vajubhai Vala to direct the Speaker to take up the voting on
the confidence motion moved by chief minister H D Kumaraswamy
Thursday itself fearing that the coalition partners Congress
and JD(S) were indulging in delaying tactics.
A BJP delegation met the governor even as the assembly
was debating the confidence motion amid fears by the party
that "extraneous" issues were being raised by the coalition to
prolong the debate to buy more time to save the ministry.
"We have a fear that somewhere there is an attempt to
savethis minority government....," BJP leader and former
chief minister Jagadish Shettar told reporters.
He said the delegation met the governor and submitted a
memorandum requesting him to direct the speaker that there be
a detailed discussion without any adjournment on the
confidence motion and a decision should be taken today itself.
    He said the Governor has assured the delegation that
he would discuss with the legal experts and take a decision
within the framework of law. PTI GMS RA
