Karnataka Speaker Ramesh Kumar on Tuesday refused to accept the resignations of 13 rebel MLAs.
"If anyone prove that the resignations was under duress, it will not be accepted," Speaker Ramesh Kumar said. Talking to media outside his office on Tuesday, the speaker said that none of the resignations have reached him till date. "None of resignations have reached me. I will look at it, I have to treat the resignations individually, not in group."
Speaker Ramesh Kumar had asked the rebel MLAs - 10 Congress's and three JD (S)'s - to meet him in his office on Tuesday to discuss the resignation. But no MLA had sought the appointment, till the time of filing this report.
"If anyone wants an appointment, they have to get appointment from my office. If anyone proves that the resignations was under duress, it will not be accepted," he said.
