Congress Goa MLAs formally join BJP

Congress increasing BJP’s membership: Kerala CM’s jibe at party’s political crisis

Friday's court order gives a breather to the Karnataka government, which could have fallen if the resignations were accepted.

Justifying dropping of ministers, Lobo, without naming anybody, alleged that some of them tried to arm-twist Sawant.

After the intervention of the Supreme Court Thursday, the high-voltage political drama in Karnataka came to an end. He should get adequate time to decide on resignations of the MLAs, Dhavan said.

Kumar had made the same point on Thursday, while questioning the court's powers to issue directives to a Speaker on the discharge of his or her Constitutional duties.

He stated that the question which therefore requires to be decided by the Speaker is whether any disqualification has been incurred by the MLAs concerned prior to the submission of the resignation letter.

Bangalore-based legal expert Ashok Haranahalli explained that disqualified lawmakers can not become ministers till they contest and win a by-election - or a subsequent election.

"@Goaforwardparty is part of the NDA and had joined the BJP-led state government after talks with the national leadership of the @BJP4India". His object is to keep resignations pending and then disqualify them so that resignations become infructuous.

On the other side, appearing for the Speaker, senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi submitted that the Speaker first had to decide the disqualification proceedings.

The Congress, whose 13 of the 79 MLAs have already submitted their resignations from the Assembly, has moved about 50 MLAs to the Clarks Exotica Convention Resorts on the outskirts of the city. He asked if the party has leadership only during the golden period and was left with no one during times of crisis.

"The Speaker is riding two horses". The Speaker, however, moved the apex court later in the day seeking a recall of the order as it had been passed ex-parte.

Dhavan also added that the Speaker had to conduct an enquiry to ascertain that the resignations were genuine and voluntary.

Justice Gogoi asked Singhvi: "Is it your submission that the Supreme Court can not exercise its jurisdiction?"

The hearing of disgruntled MLAs resumed in the Supreme Court.

In the wake of HD Kumaraswamy deciding to seek a trust vote, Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar Friday said a slot would be allotted whenever the Karnataka Chief Minister opted for it. "His arguments are more nuanced".

"Speaker can be given one or two days to decide on the issue of resignations. An inquiry has to be undertaken".
