Karnataka Political Crisis: CM Kumaraswamy seeks time for trust vote to prove majority in assembly

Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy seeks time from the speaker for a floor test to prove majority.

There seems to be no end to the ongoing political drama in the state of Karnataka as Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy today declared that he intends to seek a trust vote in the assembly in the current session.

Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy’s decision to seek a trust vote in the assembly comes just an hour after Supreme Court’s order to the Karnataka speaker to maintain status quo in dealing with resignation and disqualification of the rebel Congress-JDS MLAs.

“In the light of various developments, I have to decide on seeking a trust vote,” said the Chief Minister Kumaraswamy. Reportedly, he has sought time from the Speaker to do the same.

Further, CM Kumaraswamy has expressed confidence in the majority of his government and said that the situation has forced him to take this action.

“I am forced to say this in this situation. A few MLAs’ decision has led to this crisis. I am not here to stay here permanently. I am ready for anything,” Kumaraswamy said.

The monsoon session of the Karnataka legislature began on July 12, even as the State is gripped by a political crisis. The Supreme Court is hearing the petition regarding the political crisis and has postponed the case to July 16.

It may be noted that the Karnataka assembly is yet to pass the finance bill, which is scheduled to be taken up during the monsoon session. CM Kumaraswamy, who is also the finance minister, had presented the budget in February this year, but the same is yet to be passed by the assembly. If the current situation continues, it is certain that assembly will not pass the budget, as BJP is going to vote against it. And if a budget or finance bill is rejected by a house, the government is assumed to have lost the confidence of the house and it has to resign. Probably that is why HD Kumaraswamy has decided to seek trust vote instead of having to resign after he fails to get the budget passed.

A total of 16 MLAs including 13 from the Congress and 3 from the JDS have resigned from the Congress-JDS government. In addition to these MLAs, two independents MLAs, who were made Ministers also decided to withdraw support from the 13-month old Congress-JD(S) coalition government.
