Karnataka Legislative Assembly Speaker received the resignation letters re-submitted by 10 Congress and JD(S) MLAs

Bangalore:11/7/19:Karnataka Legislative Assembly Speaker received the resignation letters re-submitted by 10 Congress and JD(S) MLAs today and said he will take a decision based on the genuineness of the letters and whether they were voluntary in nature.

Addressing media persons after receiving the resignation letters, Speaker Ramesh Kumar said he will inform the Supreme court about the procedure he will follow and submit the video recording of today’s proceedings to the court.

Making specific mention of anti-defection law, the Speaker said, many Governments were toppled because a few wanted to become ministers and this had to be prevented for an era of clean politics. He stressed that he cannot take the decision in haste as he has to be convinced and act according to the aspirations of people and the spirit of the Constitution.

In another development, the Congress and JD(S) has issued whip to its MLAs to be present in the legislative session tomorrow and vote in favour of the Finance Bill.

The notice issued by them says that those who absent themselves or vote against the Government will invite the provisions of the anti-defection law.

It can be recalled that the coalition Government in Karnataka is facing crisis after 16 Congress and JD(S) MLAs submitted their resignation letters to the Speaker.
