We’re not bacchas; will not allow voice vote: Shivakumar

The Congress-JD(S) combine will not allow a voice vote when Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa moves a trust motion, Congress leader DK Shivakumar said. 

“We’re not bacchas here. We’ve seen the Assembly for 30 years. There law is clear. We want division of votes. We will not allow a voice vote,” Shivakumar told reporters. 

Two Congress MLAs - Anand Singh and Pratapgouda Patil - did not show up for the oath-taking ceremony on Saturday. “I’m confident they will come. When they come, I’m sure they’ll vote for us,” Shivakumar said. 

The Congress leader also demanded a probe by the I-T department on the alleged offer made by Yeddyurappa’s son BY Vijayendra to the wife of a Congress legislator. The Congress released an audio clip in which Vijayendra is purportedly heard offering ₹30 crore as bribe.
