Karnataka Political Crisis – Meeting at Dy. CM Home
The ruling Congress-JDS coalition is still in complete crisis mode and so lawmakers from the party have held a meeting at Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara's home.
The coalition suffered a blow when 11 lawmakers from both parties resigned on Saturday. The resignations will be examined by Speaker Ramesh Kumar tomorrow.
The Congress and the JDS together have 118 members in the state assembly, along with one BSP and one Independent member.
This brings its numbers down to 105 and the majority mark in the assembly from 113 to 106. The BJP also has 105 members.
Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy returned early from his US trip on Sunday and held a meeting with coalition partner Congress.
