Kumaraswamy government is likely to lose its majority status as H Nagesh who was recently appointed as small scale industries minister withdraws his support from the party and offer his support to BJP.
It’s another setback for the coalition government of Karnataka as small industries minister, and independent MLA H Nagesh resign from the state cabinet. He has submitted his resignation to Vjubhai Vala who is the governor of the state.
Amidst the whole political crisis that is ongoing in Karnataka CM HD, Kumaraswamy returned immediately from the US in a chartered flight to address the entire situation.
The secular government of Congress-Janta Dal is now facing a big crisis as 14 legislators have submitted their resignation in the past week from both the parties to the speaker KR Ramesh Kumar.
The coalition has 119 members in the member assembly of 224 members, including the speaker and 14 rebel MLAs. If the speaker accepts their resignation, the strength of the alliance will drop to 104 and the strength of the Assembly will drop to 210.
In this whole scenario, BJP will get n advantage as now it has 105 MLAs and after all of this turbulence, it will be left with only one legislator to claim it’s the majority.
Independent MLA H Nagesh and all other legislators who have resigned have been reported to stay in a hotel in Maharashtra. Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on, the other hand has accused BJP of poaching the legislators of the JD(S) and Congress alliance in Karnataka.
He further said that he would try to raise this issue in parliament. BJP leader Karandlaje, on the other hand, has welcomed the independent MLA H Nagesh to BJP as per the reports of ANI.
In a letter written to Karnataka Governor independent, MLA H Nagesh said that he has already withdrawn his support to the government of HD Kumaraswamy. He further said that through this letter he would like to extend his support to BJP government if called for good self.
