Trust vote: Karnataka Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar has summoned rebel lawmakers on Tuesday
Karnataka Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar has summoned rebel lawmakers at 11 am tomorrow after a request by the ruling Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition sought to disqualify them, amid a row over trust vote.
Sixteen legislators – 13 from the Congress and three from JDS – have resigned in the last two weeks, and two independent legislators have withdrawn their support to the coalition government.
The ruling coalition had 118 members in the 224-member assembly. If the resignations of the 15 legislators who approached the Supreme Court are accepted, the government will be left with 101 members. With the support of the two independents, the opposition BJP has 107 legislators, which is two more than the majority mark of 105.
