Bengaluru, July 09: The BJP has decided to play the wait and watch game in Karnataka. The party has indicated that it would make its next move only after the Speaker of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly, Ramesh Kumar takes a decision on the resignations of 13 MLAs.
If the resignations of the 13 MLAs is accepted, the effective strength of the House falls from 224 to 211. In such a scenario, the magic number is. 106 and the BJP has 105 on its own. However with the support of the two Independent MLAs, the BJP’s strength goes up to 107, which means it would have a wafer thin majority.
