Karnataka trust vote Live Updates

After high drama in the Karnataka Assembly on Thursday, Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy was constrained by Karnataka Governor Vajubhai Vala to prove his majority by 1:30 pm on Friday. The governor has written a letter to the Chief Minister in this regard. However, as the deadine was crossed, the Governor extended it to 6 pm.

Karnataka Legislative Assembly began proceedings at 11:00 am today.

In a letter to the Chief Minister Kumaraswamy, Vala had initially said, "I require you to prove your majority on the floor of the House on or before 1:30 p.m. tomorrow (Friday)."

The Governor also brought to the chief minister's attention that he had already directed the Speaker to hold the floor test by the end of the day (Thursday) under Article 175(2) of the Constitution.

"But I am informed that the House is adjourned today (Thursday). Under these circumstances, I require you to prove majority on Friday by 1:30 p.m.," the letter said.

Meanwhile, nearly 100 legislators of the Bharatiya Janata Party refused to leave the Karnataka Assembly Thursday night, in protest against the delay in floor test by Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy on the confidence motion he moved on Thursday, to prove that his Congress-JD-S coalition government has a majority.

The legislators had masala dosa and curd rice for supper in the assembly lounges. 

Many went to sleep early after a long day in the House due to heated exchanges and acrimonious scenes in the House, as the ruling combine was reportedly delayed in going through the crucial vote.

Though most of the party lawmakers have been staying at a resort on the city's northwest suburb since July 12 when the 10-day monsoon session began, they are overnight staying to ensure the floor test is conducted on Friday by 1.30 p.m. as Vala directed Chief Minister.
