The BJP and Congress leaders are simultaneously holding legislative party meetings in Bengaluru today. Here's a look at what can happen today.
Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy on Friday missed the second deadline of 6 p.m. set by Governor Vajubhai Vala to prove the Congress-JD (S) coalitiongovernment's majority in the Assembly. Alternatively, with defeat imminent, he could resign without taking the vote, paving the way for the BJP to form the government. BJP MLAs also met the party leadership. They had approached the Supreme Court which had issued an interim order on July 17 giving them liberty not to attend the trust vote proceedings.
"It is a matter of vast pain and disgust that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has not only taken Karnataka's political scenario to a new low, but also set a new benchmark in the country for immoral politics", Kumaraswamy said.
The Congress-JD (S) coalition has approached the Supreme Court for clarity on its earlier order to help the alliance disqualify rebels under the stringent anti-defection laws.
One more Congress MLA from Kagawad, Shrimant Patil, who mysteriously disappeared from a resort in Bengaluru to land at a hospital in Mumbai, is also likely to skip the trust vote proceedings, sources said.
Meanwhile, if the BJP, which is waiting in the wings to form its government, finds success in hatching its plan, the Congress-JD (S) coalition will be down to 98 when Kumaraswamy takes the Floor Test. Yeddyurappa alleged that the coalition was unnecessarily buying time despite knowing the whip issued to the rebel MLAs was of no use.
"We have committed in front of the Speaker and the House. Let us strive together to save democracy and protect the spirit of country's Constitution from these evil forces who are willing to destroy any democratic and constitutionally established institutions for the sake of power", he added.
"JD (S) national president H.D. Deve Gowda has spoken to the Congress party high command".
As many as 16 MLAs - 13 from Congress and three from JD (S) - had resigned, while independent MLAs R Shankar and H Nagesh have withdrawn support to the coalition government, putting the government on edge.
If the resignations of 15 MLAs (12 from Congress and 3 from JDS) are accepted or if they stay away, the ruling coalition's tally will plummet to 101, (excluding the Speaker) reducing the government to a minority.
Amid reports that BSP MLA N Mahesh will not be attending the crucial floor test in the state assembly on Monday, party supremo Mayawati has asked her lone legislator in Karnataka to vote in favour of the H.D. Kumaraswamy led government.
