Shortly before Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa's test of strength, there were reports that he would meet the governor. It was not clear why. There was speculation that Mr Yeddyurappa would resign but the BJP insisted he wasn't going to resign. "We will win," a BJP spokesman said. The Chief Minister's BJP is short of a majority and has been accused by the opposition Congress and Janata Dal of trying to bribe and threaten their lawmakers. The Congress has released audio tapes as proof. Two Congress lawmakers were missing in the assembly as newly-elected members were sworn in. Anand Singh and Pratap Gowda Patil, were believed to have been kept in a Bengaluru hotel by the BJP.
