Hours before the Congress- Janata Dal (Secular) (JD(S)) coalition government goes for floor test, Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Karnataka unit chief BS Yeddyurappa said he was confident of forming the government in the next four to five days.

"I am quite confident that the BJP government will come into existence in the next three to four days. The BJP will give the best administration in Karnataka," BS Yeddyurappa told reporters.

BS Yeddyurappa claimed HD Kumaraswamy would fail to save the coalition government.

"HD Kumaraswamy will not be able to continue as chief minister. He too knows it. I think he will quit after making a good speech in the assembly," BS Yeddyurappa, who quit in similar circumstances early last year, said.

BJP is now the single largest party with 105 seats in the 224-member House. The ruling coalition's total strength is 116 (Congress-78, JD(S)-37 and BSP-1), besides the Speaker.

With the support of the two independent, the BJP has 107 MLAs in the House, where the half-way mark is 113.
