New Delhi: Dubbing Karnataka Chief Minister
B S Yeddyurappa`s winning the trust vote in the state Assembly
as "transitory" in nature, Law Minister Veerappa Moily on Thursday
said no party can run a stable government with "this sort of
majority".

"The victory of the ruling party in the trust vote is
only transitory in nature. No party can run a stable
government with this sort of majority," Moily, a former
Karnataka Chief Minister, said shortly after Yeddyurappa
won the trust vote.

Accusing the BJP of playing a fraud on the Assembly
during the first vote of confidence taken by Yeddyurappa on
Monday, he said today`s exercise was an "improvement on that".

"The first trust vote was a fraud played on the
legislative Assembly and the latest vote of confidence is only
an improvement on that," Moily said.

He admitted that the opposition was not in a position to
gather support to give a stable government to the state but
pointed out that much would depend on the High Court ruling in
the matter.

"While the opposition is not in a position to muster
support to run a stable government, much would depend on the
court ruling," Moily said.

Sixteen MLAs -- 11 from BJP and five Independents --
were disqualified under anti-defection law on October 10 by
the Speaker ahead of Monday`s vote which has been challenged
in the High Court.

The court has reserved its orders on the plea of the BJP
MLAs for quashing the Speaker`s orders, while it adjourned
hearing on the plea of the Independent MLAs to Monday.

Yeddyurappa was forced to go in for the second trial of
strength after Governor H R Bhardwaj rejected the result of
Monday vote as "farce" and gave him another chance on Tuesday,
which the BJP accepted.
