Karnataka: No trust vote today, Speaker adjourns Assembly till Monday

Bengaluru, Jul 19 (IBNS): Karnataka Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar once again on Friday adjourned the house till Monday thereby stalling the trust vote.

Karnataka's Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition has now won a two-day breather.

The decision was taken by the Speaker even as Governor Vajubhai Vala directed him to conduct the trust vote on Friday.

The ruling combine, which had received a jolt following the Governor's direction to the Chief Minister, had reportedly knocked the doors of the Supreme Court, seeking a stay on the Governor's direction to prove floor test within hours in the noon.

The Confidence motion, which was moved by the Chief Minister on Thursday, had never reached to its logical conclusion, as the ruling Congress and the JD(S) members sought clarifications from the Speaker over an interim order of the Supreme Court, on the petitions of the 15 rebel MLAs.

While the opposition BJP members were insisted to complete the process of the confidence motion, the Speaker while taking cognizance of the ruling party members, deferred the house on the text of seeking legal opinion from the Advocate General over the issues raised by the Congress and the JD(S) members.

Earlier the Opposition BJP members, met the Karnataka Governor and submitted a petition, seeking intervention of him as the ruling coalition was indulged in dragging on the issue with ulterior motive.

The house was adjourned in the evening, not withstanding a message sent by the Karnataka Governor, seeking the Speaker to complete the process of confidence motion, by the end of the day.
