Bangalore, February 8
Newly appointed Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy today won legitimacy for himself and his alliance government by winning the trust vote on the floor of the House through voice vote after a grueling 10-hour session.

The trust vote, which was moved by Mr Kumaraswamy in the morning immediately after the Assembly today, was put to vote around midnight today.

Immediately after the Chief Minister won the voice vote, the Opposition demanded that a division of votes be done.

Following this, Kumaraswamy got 138 votes in his favour and 66 against. He needed 113 votes to carry the vote of confidence and was assured on only 37 votes from the JD(S) group headed by him and 79 from the BJP, besides some votes from Independent legislators.
