Karnataka Speaker to examine resignations tomorrow

Pennews

Karnataka Speaker Ramesh Kumar will examine all resignation letters submitted to him by the lawmakers on Tuesday.

When 11 rebel lawmakers submitted resignation letters on Saturday, Speaker Ramesh Kumar was not present in the office. If the resignations stand, the Congress-JDS coalition's 118 members in the 224-seat state assembly will come down to 104 and the majority mark will drop from 113 to 106. The BJP, with the support of Nagesh, will have 106 members.

Anyway, the decision of the Karnataka Speaker will be crucial in view of the looming crisis in the JDS- Congress government.
