Congress-JD-S counsel Abhishek Singhvi argues, 'Yeddyurappa claimed support, but he does not have letters of support from these MLAs or it is only his oral submissions.' Singhvi, submits to Supreme Court that Congress-JD-S are ready for floor test tomorrow.

Singhvi, sought proper security for Congress-JD(S) MLAs in case of floor test being conducted. Supreme Court observed that it can pass an order to make proper security arrangements.

Reports now say that ASG Tushar Mehta says that the governor says that the Congress-JD-S letter did not have signatures of the 117 MLAs. The letter only had signatures of the leaders of both the parties, reports say.


Yeddyurappa's counsel Mukul Rohatgi now says at least a week should be given to the BJP to prove their majority in the floor of the House.
