Bangalore: Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj on Wednesday told Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa that he expects the Centre's decision on his recommendation for imposition of President's rule in the state by Thursday.

Apparently awaiting the Centre's move, Bhardwaj asked Yeddyurappa to wait for a day or two for his decision on the state cabinet recommendation for convening the Assembly from June 2.

A ministerial delegation, led by Yeddyurappa, met the Governor at Raj Bhavan and requested him to give approval for convening the Assembly session, which the Cabinet on May 16 said was necessary to pass the full budget for better implementation of the development programmes.

Earlier, vote on account for four months (till July 31, 2011) had been approved by the Karnataka legislature.

Yeddyurappa said Bhardwaj told the delegation that a clear response has not come from the Centre on his recommendation and he expects it today or tomorrow.

The Governor told the Chief Minister to "wait for one day (regarding consent for the session)."

Yeddyurappa said the Governor assured him that he would "let us know his decision (on convening of the session) in a day or two."
