Karnataka crisis: High-decibel arguments witnessed in SC

Karnataka crisis: High-decibel arguments witnessed in SC

The MLAs alleged that Ramesh Kumar, the Karnataka Assembly Speaker was not willing to accept their resignation, even when they are in accordance with the provisions in the Indian constitution.

The bench specifically mentioned in the order that the speaker would not decide on the issue of the resignation or the disqualification of the rebel MLAs to enable the court to judge the larger issues raised during the hearing of the matter. I will follow the Constitution. I have taken their letters.

"I don't want to make any decisions in a haste". I have already given appointments to five of them.

Nine rebel MLAs timed their arrival in the city in such a way that they only had time to dash to the Vidhana Soudha from HAL Airport in a bus escorted by the city police. Instead, the speaker was relying on Article 190 (3)(b), where he is supposed to verify the nature of the resignations, whether those are voluntary and bonafide, and if not, they should not be accepted.

The Supreme Court has directed the 10 rebellious Congress MLAs to speak to Karnataka assembly speaker at 6 pm today. I am not under anyone's obligation. It posed the question when senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for Kumar, said the assembly speaker also held a constitutional post and was obligated to decide on the disqualification as well. Hundred policemen including Bengaluru commissioner Alok Kumar escorted the rebel MLAs inside.

The bench had on Thursday directed the Speaker to meet the rebel MLAs who were asked to give their resignations afresh in person. However, the court had rejected that plea saying, "In the morning we had fixed the matter for hearing tomorrow".

Father of Celtics rookie Waters found dead in motel
He's been with the Celtics for the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and played in Thursday's game against Memphis. Authorities are investigating the untimely death and it is considered to be an active case.

The four legislators, Byrathi Basavraj, S T Somashekar, Shivaram Hebbar and B C Patil, visited the temple located in central Mumbai.

The rebel MLAs shifted to Mumbai after submitting their resignations on July 6. Rohatgi contended that the Speaker was in duality - first he sought time to examine the resignations and the reasons behind submitting them, and then he moved the court contesting the authority of the top court to issue orders to him.

Immediately after meeting the speaker and submitting their resignations in the "correct format", the MLAs were whisked back to the HAL airport to head back to Mumbai.

On the other hand, the BJP has 105 MLAs and is eyeing the government formation.

After Singhvi, senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan jumped into the arguments on behalf of Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy.

The Congress-JDS government, which came to power around 13 months ago, plunged into a serious crisis on Saturday following the resignation of over a dozen MLAs from the two parties. The Congress had earlier filed a petition before the Speaker to disqualify Ramesh Jarkiholi and Mahesh Kumatahalli. The party is yet to file a fresh petition against the other rebel MLAs.
