18 May, 2018, 16:18
Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Yeddyurappa, suggested the floor test to be conducted on Monday, but the apex court rejected the suggestion while adding that the floor test should happen at the earliest.

Karnataka governor Vajubhai Vala administers oath to BJP leader B. S. Yeddyurappa as chief minister of the state at a ceremony in Bengaluru on Thursday.
The Congress has argued the letter submitted by Yeddyurappa has only 104 signatures, which is clearly short of the majority mark of 112-seats in the 222-member assembly.
Yeddyurappa is trying everything to poach the MLAs of Congress and JDS to prove his majority in the Floor Test.
Reacting to the development, the Congress said that it was extraordinary and demanded the Supreme Court to take note of this 'confession.' Pawan Khera told NDTV that Rohatgi's statement was a confession of horse-trading and the top court ought to have taken note of his confession.
The bench, comprising justices AK Sikri, SA Bobde and Ashok Bhushan, posted the matter for further hearing on Friday morning and ordered placing before it the letter of support from MLAs presented by the BJP to Karnataka Governor.
In a dramatic turn of events, the SC heard the Congress-JD (S) petition against Governor Vajubhai Vala's invite to Yeddyurappa for almost three and a half hours on Thursday starting at 1.45 am.

Targeting the BJP, he said, "A murder accused is the president of a national party, which has not been seen in the last 70 years".
