Twist in the tale: Kumaraswamy asks JD(S) MLAs to not leave the golf resort, BJP MLAs leave the assembly without meeting the speaker

In a major twist in Karnataka crisis, the Karnataka state assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar has rejected the resignations of 8 out of 13 rebel Congress MLAs because they were not in the ‘prescribed format’. The BJP MLAs who had gone to the Vidhan Soudha to meet the Speaker left without meeting him as he was ‘not there’.

The JD(S) has accused the BJP of ‘buying’ MLAs in Karnataka for Rs 1,000 crore.

The JD(S) MLAs who are huddled up at Prestige Golfshire Club in Bengaluru are asked by the Karnataka CM to stay there for four more days as the Karnataka crisis deepens.

Meanwhile, the BJP has demanded that Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy should resign. The BJP lawmakers will be protesting at the Gandhi statue in Vidhan Soudha in Karnataka.

The unholy alliance

Karnataka government has been threatening to collapse ever since the H D Kumaraswamy government sworn in in May last year. The unholy alliance was forged after May 2018 state assembly elections after the BJP which emerged as single largest party with 104 seats could not form a majority in the 222 seat state assembly. Congress and JD(S) had 78 and 38 seats respectively.

The Governor had invited the BJP to form the government since it was the single largest party and B S Yeddyurappa swore in as the chief minister. Congress went to the Supreme Court but the apex court did not entertain the petition. Eventually Yeddyurappa resigned as CM after claiming he did not have the majority. Eventually the Congress-JD(S) led coalition government was formed on May 23.
