The principal Opposition party in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly is likely to press Governor H R Bhardwaj to direct the Shettar government to seek a trust vote before presenting annual budget for 2013-14.

According to party sources, Congress legislators both in the Assembly and Council have been instructed to demand a trust vote before presenting the budget. A formal decision is expected to be taken at the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) meeting on Monday morning ahead of the Governor’s address, party sources said.

CLP secretary C S Nadagouda told Express that the meeting had been convened to evolve a party strategy to be adopted during the session.

Nadagouda also did not rule out the possibilities of moving a no-confidence motion against the government.  The Congress had already petitioned the Governor appealing to direct Shettar to seek a confidence vote as 14 BJP MLAs had submitted their resignation and the Speaker had accepted 12 of them.
