Karnataka political crisis enters third day, Ministerial post to be vacated to accommodate rebel MLAs
Independent MLA Nagesh has withdrawn his support from the present coalition government of Congress-JDS amid the Karnataka political crisis. Karnataka has been in the deep political crisis in the last three days as many of their MLAs have apart themselves from the state government.
Sunday night Chief Minister of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy met the coalition leaders in the last attempt to save his 13-month-old alliance government. As per the sources, there was no fruitful outcome of the meeting. However, few leaders have decided to offer board chairman post to MLA Narayan Gowda and ministerial seats to MLA Gopinath and former JD(S) state chief H Vishwanath.
MLA Nagesh might join BJP amid the Karnataka political crisis
MLA Nagesh also hinted at joining the Bhartiya Janta Party if they will look to form the government after the current government fails to show majority.
BJP leader R Ashok wronged the allegation put by G Parmeshwara’s on the misuse of Governor’s office. Former Deputy Chief Minister said “BJP had nothing to do with the resignation of MLA Nagesh, he has resigned because he was humiliated.
Earlier Congress MP DK Suresh had accused BJP of intervention in the resignation of Independent MLA Nagesh. He said “BJP is involved in the resignation and, I heard about him only through the media. He also said that the entire Kumarswamy cabinet can resign to accommodate rebel MLAs.”
