The government of the BJP's BS Yediyurappa sailed through the trust vote in the Karnataka assembly today after an intense, three-week power struggle that saw 18 lawmakers bring down the 14-month-old coalition government of the Congress and HD Kumaraswamy. Last evening, the last of the coalition's rebel lawmakers were disqualified by Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar. Mr Yediyurappa said he would not indulge in "politics of vengeance" as he believed in the "forget and forgive" principle. The Congress and HD Kumaraswamy's Janata Dal Secular-- which crashed in the trust vote last week -- have accused the BJP of horse-trading, an allegation the party denied. Minutes after the trust vote, Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar resigned.
