Bangalore: The opposition in Karnataka on Thursday
described the BJP government winning the trust vote as a
"partial" victory and pinned their hopes on the the High court
ruling over disqualification of the 16 MLAs.

Reacting to the BJP victory for the second time in
the House in four days, Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah
said: "This is only the semi-final".

He said Congress was still awaiting the High Court ruling
on disqualification of 16 MLAs including five independents.

Congress state unit working President D K Shiv Kumar
described BJP winning the confidence vote as a partial win as
the disqualfied MLAs did not participate.

JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy said the court was still to decide
the fate and hence today`s vote of confidence could not
be considered a victory till it gave its ruling.
