The Congress-JDS coalition is facing a collapse after 18 resignations over the last week.

If the resignations are accepted, the ruling coalition will slip below the half-way mark and rival BJP will have a majority.

The coalition won a reprieve on Friday till Tuesday as the Supreme Court said there would be no decision on the resignations until then.

The rebel lawmakers have been camping in Mumbai since last Saturday after resigning and withdrawing support to the 13-month-old JD(S)-Congress government in Karnataka, bringing it on the verge of collapse.

The 11-day monsoon session of the Karnataka Legislature began on Friday.
