Karnataka Congress Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah seeks the disqualification of rebel MLAs who have resigned. He also asked the 10 party MLAs who had resigned to come back or face the consequences.
He said the CLP leader meet here convened to control the crisis following the resignation of the 14 coalition MLAs, and three from ally JD(S) and Suspended Congress MLA, Roshan Baig. Siddaramaiah criticized the resignations were not voluntary and genuine.

The BJP has been destabilizing elected in Karnataka government and other states in an anti-democratic manner, he said. “Ever since the coalition government took over in the state, the BJP is trying to destabilize it,” siddaramaiah said. “This is their six attempts.”
Siddaramaiah said the Congress would case the Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar, seeking the disqualification of MLAs who have resigned. He said, “we are going to stage a dharna near the Gandhi statue for an hour where all the MLAs will participate after which we will submit the petition to the Speaker.”
