Can we expect BJP government in Karnataka next week?
BJP was confident that the Congress-JDS government, led by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, would lose the trust vote in the Legislative Assembly on Thursday.
Confirming the same, BJP National General Secretary P Muralidhar Rao on Wednesday claimed that a BJP government is expected to take charge in Karnataka next week. He said that the coalition government is in 'clear minority' and should go.
Meanwhile, Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar, who was initially negotiated in receiving resignations from the rebel MLA’s was free to decide on the resignations of the rebel legislators within such time-frame as deemed appropriate by him.
The Supreme Court earlier on Wednesday directed that the 15 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs “ought not” to be compelled to take part in the proceedings of the Assembly, which is slated to decide a confidence motion moved by the state government on Thursday.
After this order passed by Supreme Court, Rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs on Wednesday released a video from Mumbai, wherein they said they will not withdraw their resignations nor will they attend Karnataka Assembly "at any cost".
Considering the following circumstances one can expect the formation of the BJP government in Karnataka dethroning Kumara Swamy led Congress-JDS government.
