 May 18, 2018: Within hours of BS Yeddyurappa being sworn in as chief minister, Supreme Court today ordered a floor test for Yeddyurappa government at 4 pm in Karnataka Assembly tomorrow. 

While Congress accepted the apex court's suggestion to hold the floor test tomorrow, the BJP Council Mukul Rohatgi requested the test to be conducted on Monday, which was rejected by the court. 
Hearing the Congress' plea against governor's decision to invite Yeddyurappa to form government in Karnataka, the apex court said the 'floor test seems to be the best option.' 
SC observed that as BS Yeddyurappa has claimed majority support and BJP is the single largest party, this has to be tested and a floor test has to be held on Saturday. 
'It is just a number game, one who enjoys the majority should be invited to form the government," SC observed. 
Contesting Congress's claims BJP's lawyer Mukul Rohatgi told Court, 'We have certain information that many MLAs from other parties have not given any kind of written support to Congress-JD(S).' 
Earlier, Supreme Court wanted to know on what basis the Governor asks a party to provide a stable government. BJP's lawyer Mukul Rohatgi submitted that at this stage he does not want to say anything more. 
The Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala had on Wednesday invited the BJP, the single largest party in the state, to form a government, overlooking the claims of the Congress and JD(s) combine prompting the latter to move the top court in the middle of the night. 
A three-judge bench, comprising Justices AK Sikri, SA Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, had refused the Congress plea to defer the swearing in scheduled for earlier on Thursday to examine the claims and counterclaims of the two parties.
