Karnataka trust vote: Speaker displeased over absent MLAs

  • Bengaluru | Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar on Tuesday expressed displeasure over near-empty treasury benches as the House took up the debate on Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s motion of confidence for the fourth day running.
  • As the House debated the motion amid noisy scenes, the Congress made its intentions clear right from the beginning, saying that voting should be deferred as the apex court was hearing the pleas by two Independent MLAs on the issue of the trust vote.
  • While 16 MLAs — 13 from the Congress and three from JD(S) — have resigned, independent MLAs R Shankar and H Nagesh have withdrawn their support to the coalition government, pushing the government to the precipice.
