As Karnataka assembly descends into turmoil, CM’s brother HD Revanna naps peacefully inside the house

The HD Kumaraswamy government is facing a floor test today in Karnataka assembly.

The coalition government of Janta Dal (Secular) and Congress is facing a second trust vote today. Amidst the high voltage drama, chaos and political mud-slinging, JD(S) MLA and former PM HD Deve Gowda’s son HD Revanna was caught on camera sleeping inside the Vidhan Soudha during the live telecast of Karnataka Assembly proceedings.

Amusingly, this is not the first time the Karnataka public works minister has been caught taking a nap in such assembly sessions or public gatherings. HD Revanna has been found taking a nap multiple times in the past.

In January 2019, he was spotted sleeping during HD Deve Gowda’ speech at Hasan.

Last year, when the assembly met to conduct a floor test post-2018 elections, HD Revanna was again caught on camera sleeping inside the assembly while the then CM BS Yeddyurappa gave his last speech ahead of the scheduled floor test.

The Supreme Court had then ordered a floor test in the Karnataka Assembly after slashing the 15-day window given by Governor Vajubhai Vala to BJP Chief Minister Yeddyurappa to prove his majority. However, Yeddyurappa had then submitted his resignation making the floor test redundant.

Karnataka is once again going through a high octane political drama with MLAs of the Congress- JDs coalition government resigning then the Speaker refusing to accept resignations. MLAs were herded into hotels and resorts amidst the allegations of horse-trading. Today, the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition government taking a floor test to decide if the nearly 14-month-old government will survive.

In the latest, 21 MLAs including 15 rebel MLAs are currently missing from the House, meanwhile, BJP has demanded an immediate floor test. The House is adjourned till 3 pm.
