Karnataka coalition crisis: BS Yeddyurappa says Kumaraswamy govt’s term to end on Monday

With the adjournment of the House and the government failing to take up voting on the confidence motion, the floor test for the Kumaraswamy-led Karnataka government to prove majority will most likely take place on Monday at 11am.

Bengaluru: The floor test for the Kumaraswamy-led Karnataka coalition government to prove majority was postponed to 11am, on Monday (July 22), after the House failed to take up voting on the confidence motion.

For the second day in succession, the Karnataka Assembly was adjourned, following the pleas by Congress MLAs. Though the Governor had asked the chief minister to prove his majority at 1:30 pm and later again at 6pm on Friday, the chief minister only put the ball in the court of the Speaker who adjourned the House a little after 8pm on Friday.

BJP Karnataka chief BS Yeddyurappa said, "Monday will be the last day for the HD Kumaraswamy government. They don't have the numbers and they aren't allowing people who have the numbers to form the government. We are 106 members in total. The Supreme Court has said MLAs who are in Mumbai can't be forced to attend the session."
