Former Karnataka CM Confident of forming government in 4-5 days

Vastavam web: As the Congress-JD(S) coalition government faces uncertainty over its numbers, BJP’s Karnataka unit chief B S Yeddyurappa Monday said he is confident of forming the government in the next four to five days. Yeddyurappa’s claim came on a day when the Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar fixed July 18 for taking up the confidence motion moved by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, whose government is on the verge of collapse after 16 MLAs resigned from the assembly.

“I am quite confident that the BJP government will come into existence in the next three to four days. The BJP will give the best administration in Karnataka,” Yeddyurappa said. Yeddyurappa claimed Kumaraswamy would fail to save the coalition government. “Kumaraswamy will not be able to continue as chief minister. He too knows it. I think he will quit after making a good speech (in the assembly),” Yeddyurappa, who had quit in similar circumstances early last year, said.
