Rebel Karnataka MLAs back in Mumbai

'Ready For Everything. Fix Time, I Will Prove Majority': Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy Moves Trust Motion

The Supreme Court had on July 11, 2019 had directed the Speaker of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly KR Ramesh Kumar to decide on the resignations tendered by the rebel MLAs forthwith. "They are working on some equations, which I doubt will work", BJP spokesperson S Prakash said.

The switchover is expected to have repercussions on the current composition of the Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition government in Goa, with the fresh induction of Congress MLAs already making coalition alliance partner Goa Forward jittery.

The apex court also asked whether the Speaker had the power to challenge its order.

Chacko, in his application, said that a resignation had the same effect as defecting from a party and that the MLAs were "bought or persuaded to resign by payment of enormous sums of money". The Congress has won no sympathy for its humiliation in the elections as also for the questionable antics of its legislators who closeted themselves at a Mumbai resort after their purported rebellion from the party.

The matter has been mentioned before the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi.

It said senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the rebel MLAs, countered the speaker's submission that the disqualification plea of the ruling coalition in the southern state had to be decided before taking up the issue of resignation of the lawmakers.

The group plans to do a " Naruto Run" - arms back, head forward, and very, very fast - in a nod to the popular anime. The group " Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us " is based on decades-old conspiracy theories that the U.S.

The MLAs told the bench on Friday that the Speaker had not taken any decision on their move to step down, adding that he had no immunity with regard to the acceptance of the resignations.

Congress leader and Karnataka Irrigation Minister D K Shivakumar, who is back in Bengaluru after a failed trip to Mumbai to meet and placate the rebel MLAs staying there, expressed his optimism that "good sense will prevail" and the dissidents will withdraw their resignations.

The rebel MLA had alleged that the Assembly Speaker was delaying the process of accepting their resignations.

"It is only after such enquiry/process that the satisfaction of the Speaker can be reached", he submitted. Also to be considered would be the question whether in a situation where resignations by MLAs and disqualification proceedings are pending against the same MLAs, the Speaker is obligated under the Constitution to decide the disqualification issue in the first instance.

The Speaker submitted that the 10th schedule casts a mandatory duty on him to decide applications for disqualifications under para 2 of the 10th schedule.

In an exclusive interview to Hindustan Times, Kumar said he would be very strict in dealing with the rebel MLAs and try to set an example. And they said whatever decision you take kindly keep us informed in the remaining portion of the day.
