Ranch,Bangalore, December 09:

The BJP government in Karnataka faced a serious threat Sunday as 13 of its 118 legislators defied a diktat and attended the launch of a party by former chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa here.

Enthused by their presence, Yeddyurappa dared Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar to prove his majority in the 225-seat assembly or quit and dissolve it to pave the way for early election otherwise due next year.

"I challenge Shettar to prove his majority without the support of my loyalist ministers and legislators. Let him take action against them if he has the guts," thundered Yeddyurappa at a mammoth public rally in this north Karnataka town, about 350 km from Bangalore.

"Otherwise, he should resign and dissolve the assembly for holding early elections," the 69-year-old said at the event to launch Karnataka Janata Party (KJP).

The JMM Sunday dared the BJP to walk out of the Jharkhand government after the former sided with the UPA and voted for FDI in retail in parliament.

Jharkhand Mukti Morcha MP Kameshwar Baitha voted for the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government while MP Shibu Soren abstained from voting in the Lok Sabha.

The motion against foreign direct investment in multi-brand retail was moved by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In the Rajya Sabha voting, the JMM abstained.

The JMM supports the BJP-led government in Jharkhand.

In April 2010, after Shibu Soren voted for the UPA government in the Lok Sabha on a BJP motion on price hike, the latter withdrew support to the JMM government.

"Let the BJP decide whether they want to be in the (Jharkhand) government or not. We have taken a stand on FDI," Deputy Chief Minister and JMM leader Hemant Soren told reporters.

Shibu Soren had on several occasions said he supported the central government despite being allied to the BJP in Jharkhand.

The BJP took power in Jharkhand with JMM's support in September 2010.
