Karnataka trust vote: Will the lotus bloom in the state again?

Marked by high drama, the Karnataka assembly was adjourned till Friday after it took up the confidence motion moved by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy with Governor Vajubhai Vala asking him to prove his majority by 1.30 pm Friday.

Shortly after the assembly rocked by bedlam was adjourned, Vala shot off a letter to Kumaraswamy, saying resignation of 15 ruling combine MLAs and withdrawal of support by two independents "prima facie" indicated he has lost the confidence of the House.

The Governor's direction to the CM came after his message to the Speaker to conclude the trust vote process by the end of Thursday was not heeded to and the House was adjourned after barely focusing on the debate on the motion through the day.

    Developments so far, at a glance

    After MLAs from both camps (Congress-JD(S) and BJP) arrived in the legislative assembly, a motion for trust vote was moved and a debate was underway. Before the session started, Karnataka BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa said that he was 100 per cent confident that the trust motion will be defeated.

    19 MLAs were absent from Karnataka Legislative Assembly. Congress got an initial blow as its MLA Srimanth Patil conveyed the party that he will not be attending the session due to ill health.

    As the debate on the motion started, Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy expressed confidence about his government. BJP's main argument and assertion was that trust vote should be carried out in the assembly right away. Congress-JD(S) contended that it was "improper" to carry out trust vote before Supreme Court clarification on its most recent decision.

    The proceedings were adjourned till 3 pm for lunch break.
