It will be a tense run up for B S Yeddyurappa before he proves his majority on the floor of the Karnataka legislative assembly. Within the next one and half hours it will become clear whether the Bharatiya Janata Party will sail through or not.

A crucial meeting of the Janata Dal-Secular legislature party is scheduled to commence at 0900 hours where a final call will be taken whether to support the BJP or not. JDS supreme H D Deve Gowda has been authorised by his party to take the final decision.

JDS had given the BJP time till Monday to sign the Memorandum of Understanding. The MoU, which has been prepared on a stamp paper, also contains certain conditions laid down by Gowda for the BJP to follow.

Senior BJP leader Yeshwant Sinha who is in Bangalore said he was hopeful that the BJP will prove its majority on the floor of the House and added that God-willing, the crisis should be resolved.

The JDS had stated that Chief Minister Yeddyurappa should himself sign the MoU and then issue a joint statement with the JDS in which he would have to state that he is abiding by all the conditions.
