K'taka crisis: Floor test expected tomorrow; Congress-JD(S) hold discussions

AIR PIC
Preceding the floor test in Karnataka Legislative Assembly possibly tomorrow, the coalition partners Congress and JD(S) held discussions since morning today. After the resignation of rebel MLAs from Congress and JD(S) the strength of the ruling coalition is reduced to around 99 and BJP strength stands at 106 with the support of one Independent. All the parties including BJP have kept their MLAs in hotels and resorts. 

The House will meet at 11.00 am tomorrow and members will take part in the discussion before the Speaker asks members to vote on the confidence motion moved by the Chief Minister in legislative Assembly. AIR correspondent reports that congress leaders are making frantic efforts to pacify the rebels without much progress. Most of the rebels have said that they will not attend the session tomorrow.

 Another Independent R Shankar too is not likely to attend the House tomorrow. One consolation for the Congress is that senior MLA Ramalingareddy has extended his support to the coalition. Will the floor test be held tomorrow or once again members will take up time discussing the motion, remains to be seen.  How the Governor will react in such a case and what will be the Supreme Court observations tomorrow is also important.
