Two independent MLAs Shankar and Nagesh have approached the Supreme Court alleging that Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy may admit himself in a hospital for further delay the trust vote which is to take place tomorrow. As per reports, Kumaraswamy’s astrologer has suggested that he delay the trust vote till Tuesday since auspicious time begins for him then.

Earlier today, Mayawati led Bahujan Samaj Party’s MLA, who had extended support to the Congress-JDS government in Karnataka had said that he will not attend the Assembly during the trust vote on directions of Mayawati. BSP MLA N Mahesh will abstain from supporting the Congress-JDS led coalition government in the floor test tomorrow in Karnataka Assembly.

If this position continues and Congress and JDS fails in wooing the dissidents back, the government will be reduced to a strength of 100 members including Speaker in the 225-member Assembly. The BJP has 105 members and the support of two Independents, which will be enough to form a government and prove majority in the house. One of the independents R Shankar may also abstain from the voting on Monday.
