Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has tweeted that he’s”confident” despite”attempts to destabilize” his administration.”Congress-JDS coalition in the country is going strong regardless of the attempts to destabilize. We’re confident and ready for smooth and profitable conduct of legislative acts,” Mr. Kumaraswamy tweeted late last night, hours after he ruled out resigning.
The Congress has arranged its lawmakers to attend the session and has the JDS, which had set up its members in a hotel just outside Bengaluru to keep its flock intact. Reports of the JDS of Chief Minister Kumaraswamy negotiating with rival BJP began buzzing last night when state Minister Sa Ra Mahesh of the JDS was seen in the business of BJP leaders such as KS Eshwarappa in a guest house.
The Chief Minister tweeted that nothing ought to be read to the assembly and BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa echoed the opinion. The Speaker had rejected many letters on the grounds of “the wrong format” so the lawmakers allegedly wrote down new resignations facing him. Afterward, they flew back to Mumbai, where they’ve been staying because they stopped on Saturday.
The Speaker had been requested to notify the court of his decision last night, but he said: “You can not expect me to operate at lightning speed.”The Speaker has also approached the same bench of the Supreme Court which is hearing the rebels’ petition. He’s asked for time to analyze if the resignations were voluntary.
Mr. Kumar said it was his constitutional duty to confirm the departures. The BJP, which will have a majority if the resignations are approved, says that the coalition government must resign because it has”lost its moral authority to rule.”
The Congress accused the party and the JDS of crafting the crisis to attempt to grab power in Karnataka, over a year after it fell short of a majority in state polls. If the resignations are approved, the coalition’s 118 members will return to 100, and the vast majority mark will fall from 113 to 105. The BJP has 105 members and the support of both Independents, which takes its tally to 107.
