The Supreme Court had asked the Speaker on 11th July to take a decision on the resignations of rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs. However, the Speaker did not take any decision after which the Supreme Court had passed the order of maintaining the status quo.

Sixteen MLAs belonging to the ruling Congress-JD(S) coalition in Karnataka has resigned, plunging the government into crisis. 14 of the rebel MLAs are currently staying in Mumbai. The rulling coalition has 116 members including 78 Congress, 37 JD(S) and 1 BSP and 1 speaker. If the resignations are accepted, the coalition number will reduce to 100, which will mean BJP will have majority with 105 MLAs.
