100% sure of winning vote of confidence, says Yeddyurappa

Newly sworn-in Karnataka Chief Minister B.S Yeddyurappa said he was '100 per cent sure' of winning the vote of confidence in the assembly and completing the five-year term.

He slammed the Congress-JDS alliance as "unholy" and charged they were out to grab power though the people had "rejected them outright".

"I am sure of winning the vote of confidence and my government completing five years," said Yeddyurappa, who has been given 15-days window by Governor Vajubhai Vala in a controversial decision that has been challenged in the Supreme Court.

Yeddyurappa also appealed to the legislators to vote according to their "conscience" and uphold the people's mandate.

"I am 100 per cent sure of the success," he said, striking a confident note on emerging victorious in the trial of strength in the assembly.
