In a bid to save the shaky coalition government in Karnataka, both Congress and JD(S) ministers in the council have handed over their resignations to the legislative party leaders, so as to accommodate the rebels. Senior Congress leader Mr Siddaramaiah said that Cabinet reshuffle will be held soon to accommodate the rebels.
Meanwhile, BJP State President B S Yeddyurappa has sought the resignation of Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy. Speaking to media persons before the legislative party meeting in the city, Mr Yeddyurappa said that the coalition government has lost the mandate and should be removed.
With the resignation of ten Congress MLAs, three JD(S) MLAs and two independents, the strength of the State Government has come down to 103 in the house strength of 225.
