Karnataka crisis: Supreme Court to pronounce verdict on rebel MLAs' plea

New Delhi, July 17 (IBNS): The Supreme Court on Wednesday will pronounce its verdict on rebel Congress and Janata Dal Secular MLAs' plea seeking the top court's direction to Speaker Ramesh Kumar to accept their resignations.

Sixteen rebel ruling Congress and JDS MLAs have submitted their resignation to Kumar. After the Speaker did not accept their resignations, few of the rebel MLAs had approached the Supreme Court which had directed them to submit the resignation letters to Kumar for the second time.

Two independent MLAs have also withdrawn their support to the Kumaraswamy government.

The top court, however, last week asked the Speaker to maintain the status quo till Tuesday.

A trust vote, which has been sought by Kumaraswamy in the assembly, will take place on Thursday.

The BJP, which has been accused of disturbing the Congress-JDS government in the state, denied any role behind the crisis.

If the resignations of the rebel and independent MLAs are accepted, the Congress-JDS will become a minority government, enabling the BJP, which has 105 seats, to assume power.

Along with the support of independent MLAs, the Congress-JDS had 118 lawmakers in their favour in the 224-member House.

If the resignations of all rebel 16 MLAs are accepted, the majority mark will fall from 113 to 105.
