Congress cracks whip: CLP meet today

BENGALURU: Amid political uncertainty and persevered efforts of the opposition BJP to topple the nine-month-old coalition govt, leader minister HD Kumaraswamy will present the state price range for 2019-20 in the assembly on Friday at 12.30pm.

Expectations on what the price range will offer have turn into secondary as all eyes are on the seven rise up Congress MLAs. Whether they are going to again defy a whip and abstain from the Congress legislature birthday party meeting scheduled for 9am on Friday remained the speaking point. Should they stay away, the Congress is expected to crack down by means of petitioning speaker KR Ramesh to disqualify them.

With the exception of 1 Congress MLA — JN Ganesh, who's on the run after assaulting colleague Anand Singh at a lodge on January 20 — Ramesh Jarakiholi, Mahesh Kumattalli, Umesh Jadhav, B Nagendra, BC Patil and D Sudhakar are disappointed over not having secured a cupboard berth.

BJP, as one Congress minister put it, reacted to the placement and is trying to make use of it to its merit to topple the federal government.

Sources say core rebels Jarkiholi, Kumattalli, Jadhav and Nagendra, allegedly holed up in Mumbai, will succeed in Bengaluru on Friday. But there's no saying whether or not they are going to attend the CLP meet and the assembly.

BJP protest black mark in legislature’s historical past: HDK

Concern in the Congress camp was once palpable as leader minister HD Kumaraswamy, former CM Siddaramaiah, DyCM G Parameshwara, ministers DK Shivakumar and Krishna Byregowda went into a huddle throughout the House for 40 mins after it was once adjourned.

It’s learnt that opposition leader BS Yeddyurappa has been informed that if his birthday party continues with its din in the House, the federal government may move a movement inquiring for the speaker to suspend a few of his birthday party MLAs. This would bring down the collection of BJP’s participants in the House, since they can't attend lawsuits for the rest of the session. sThe JD(S), which was once assured that none of its MLAs will transfer aspects, has additionally been forced to issue a whip to its MLAs on Thursday, following the surprising disappearance of its KR Pet MLA, Narayana Gowda.

“I don’t perceive why the BJP is protesting. If they think I have lost majority in the House not anything prevents them from transferring a no-trust movement. The BJP’s protest all over governor Vajubhai R Vala’s deal with to the joint session is a black mark in the historical past of Karnataka legislature. Though there have been occasion prior to now when participants shouted slogans, they'd a reason to do so,”stated HD Kumaraswamy, leader minister.
