Karnataka Rebel Congress MLAs likely to move SC against Speaker

Agency News

The rebel MLAs of Karnataka are likely to move Supreme Court against Karnataka Speaker Ramesh Kumar against his refusal of accepting resignation letters submitted by rebel MLAs.

It is learnt that the matter may come up on Thursday in the apex court.MLAs alleged that the Speaker was "abandoning his constitutional duty and deliberately delaying acceptance of their resignations".

This comes after the rebel MLAs refused to meet Congress leader DK Shivakumar, who had flown from Bengaluru early on Wednesday morning. The MLAs remained inside the Mumbai hotel while Shivakumar was barred entry by Mumbai Police. The police denied entry to Shivakumar on the basis of allegations of threat to life made by the rebel MLAs in a late night letter.

Despite the cold shoulder, DK Shivakumar continues to express hope of parleys and has said that he will take the MLAs back with him.

India Today reported that the rebel Karnataka Congress leader, Ramesh Jarkiholi had made it clear that he was not interested in meeting Karnataka Minister and Congress leader DK Shivakumar.

The report added that the rebel Congress leader, B Basavaraj had also made it clear that he was not intended to meet DK Shivakumar.
