Karnataka crisis: Ready for trust vote, please fix time, CM HD Kumaraswamy tells Speaker

PTI
Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has said that he is ready to face the trust vote and asked the Speaker to fix a date for the same.

Congress legislative party leader Siddaramaiah also said that they are confident of winning the floor test and therefore have moved the vote of confidence.

Saying that he cannot disclose how they will garner the required numbers, he said that they do not believe in poaching MLAs from other parties but there are black sheep in BJP. 

The coalition Government is facing crisis after 13 Congress and three JD(S) MLAs resigned and two Independents shifted loyalties to BJP.

Congress with 78 members and JD(S) with 37 had formed the Government. With 16 Congress and JD(S) members resigning, the Government strength has now come down to around 100. 

BJP has moved its legislators to a resort near Bengaluru to prevent any poaching. BJP state President Yeddyurappa said their legislators will be brought back directly to the legislative Assembly on Monday.


Saying that Supreme Court ruling today has brought relief to the rebel MLAs, he said, BJP is confident of having majority in the House. He said they will wait for Supreme Court proceedings on Tuesday.

Meanwhile the three rebel MLAs who were given time today by the Speaker for personal hearing did not appear before him. Sudhindra AIR News Bengaluru.
