NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today ordered live streaming of the floor test at Karnataka Assembly for Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa to prove his majority in the House.

The bench said secretary of the Legislative Assembly will record the proceedings of the House.

It said that several local channels will be provided the live feed of the proceedings so that they can also be in a position to telecast simultaneously.
