Bopaiah arrived in Mangalore from Mumbai, but did not speak to reporters on the developments.
On the sidelines of another function before Shettar met him, Bhardwaj told reporters: "Government transactions will (be taken up) after confidence test is taken. That is the job of the Chief Minister to get it listed through parliamentary procedure. It is a known procedure...The Governor cannot do anything. Don't want to prepone anything...It will happen in the session."
He said legislative business is government business.
"I have already prepared a letter saying in the event I feel you (Chief Minister) have a minority, be prepared to prove majority or undergo a vote of confidence. I have already summoned the Assembly on February 4, so no need of preponing it."
If you don't, just resign.
Don't pull a Manmohan by trying to buy majority.
