Karnataka: Jolt to Congress-JDS coalition as another independent MLA resigns, Congress ministers may quit too

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, who had gone to the United States on a personal visit had to rush back after a series of resignation threatened the existence of his government.

There seems to be no end to the political drama in Karnataka as fresh reports claim that Congress ministers in the Congress-JDS coalition government may resign to accommodate rebel MLAs.

Reportedly, Bangalore Rural MP and senior Congress leader DK Suresh speaking to media said that all Congress ministers are set to resign from the coalition amidst speculations that a new government may be formed after the resignation of 14 Congress-JDS MLAs.

Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara has called for a breakfast meeting among all Congress ministers in the Karnataka government and there is a possibility that some of them may be asked to step down to make way for some or all of the dissenting MLAs to get ministerial berths. Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy is also scheduled to attend the breakfast meeting which is being held at Parameshwara’s residence.

Meanwhile, independent MLA Nagesh, who was made a minister in the Congress-JDS government recently has also submitted his resignation letter to Governor Vajubhai Vala today. In his letter, Nagesh has claimed that he wishes to withdraw the support he had given to the HD Kumaraswamy government.

On Saturday, the Congress-JDS coalition was pushed to the edge after 13 Congress and JD(S) MLAs submitted their resignations to bring its number to 105, on par with the BJP, in the 224-member Assembly.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, who had gone to the United States on a personal visit had to rush back after a series of resignation threatened the existence of his government. HD Kumaraswamy returned back to Bangalore on Sunday and held a series of meetings with leaders of his party JD(S) and its ally Congress in a bid to rescue the coalition government.
