Karnataka crisis continues
In a major development, Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala has asked the state Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy to prove his majority in the state assembly Today before 1.30 p.m.
Last day, defying the suggestion given by the Governor to the speaker, the house proceedings in connection with the non-confidence motion was not concluded. That day, the speaker was suggested to conclude the non-confidence motion proceedings before the end of the day. The speaker was of the view that the voting on the motion should be conducted after the completion of the discussion session. As the discussion did not complete on that day, the speaker at the end of the day announced that it would continue the next day. The ruling, who wanted that discussion, welcomed the move. The opposition, who was unhappy with the move and wanted the conclusion of the session, including the voting, on that day itself, when the speaker announced his discussion to continue the session the next day, declared that they would remain in their seats in the assembly until the proceedings were concluded.
It is in the wake of the aforesaid developments that the Governor has directed the CM to prove his majority in the assembly Today before 1.30 p.m.
More details are awaited.
