  • SC ruling defangs whip in K’taka

Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala Thursday asked Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to prove his majority in the state assembly before 1:30pm Friday, observing that resignation of 15 ruling combine MLAs and withdrawal of support by two independents "prima facie" indicated he has lost the confidence of the House.

Kumaraswamy insisted that doubts had been created about the Congress-JDS coalition and it had to be brought before the country.

BJP state president, B S Yeddyurappa, who held meeting in the private resort where the legislators have been kept immediately after the Supreme Court announced its order, delivered a personal address. "We will stay until the trust vote is decided", Yeddyurappa declared.

"However, it has been reported to me that the proceedings of the House today for vote of confidence has been stalled and consequently adjourned without reaching any finality. I welcome SC's decision, it's the victory of the constitution and that of democracy, a moral victory for rebel MLAs", Yeddyurappa said.

Minister in the Kumaraswamy cabinet D K Shivakumar confirmed receipt of the governor's letter to chief minister.

Moving the motion, Mr Kumaraswamy launched a veiled attack on BJP and said, "I have self-respect and so do my ministers".

Beto O'Rourke fundraising drops in 2nd quarter
Biden spent $1.8 million on payroll this year - a hefty sum since he launched his campaign months after most of his rivals. And his poll numbers have steadily dropped, with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg , Massachusetts Sen.

With the numbers stacked against the ruling coalition, Kumaraswamy moved a one-line motion, saying that the House expresses confidence in the ministry headed by him. This places the party members under an obligation to toe the party line and is usually employed when critical bills are tabled in the House or during a motion of no-confidence. "I, therefore, send this message to the House to consider completing the proceedings of the House by the end of the day".

The Governor said he had not intervened in the matter earlier "having regard to the fact that the House was called and trust vote was moved".

The 13 Congress rebels are R Ramalinga Reddy, R Roshan Bag, ST Soma Shekar, Byrati Basavaraj and Munirathna (all from Bengaluru Assembly segments), Pratapgouda Patil (Maski), Shivaram Heber (Yellapur), BC Patil (Hirekerur), Ramesh Jarkiholi (Gokak), Mahesh Kumatahalli (Athani), Anand Singh (Vijayagara), K Sudhakar (Chikkaballapur) and MTB Nagaraj (Hoskote).

With the support of the two independents, the opposition BJP has 107 MLAs in the 225-member House, including the nominated MLA and Speaker. Karnataka Political Row: Supreme Court Rules "Speaker Can't Be Forced To Decide Within Time Frame", Says "MLAs Not Compelled To Participate In Trust Vote".

Meanwhile, high drama was witnessed with one more Congress MLA Shreemanth Patil (Kagawad) absenting himself from proceedings and sending a letter and a video to the Speaker, showing him admitted to a government hospital in Mumbai. "Who is responsible for destabilising this government?" "If this motion is taken up, then it will not be constitutional".
