Mahesh was among the 20 legislators, which includes Congress and JD (S) defectors, who did not attend the debate on the confidence motion, moved by Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, which was held Thursday and Friday. Here's a look at what can happen today. Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy moved to the Supreme Court on Saturday challenging the Governor's directive to the government saying the Governor has no constitutional right to intervene in the proceedings of the Assembly. Alternatively, with defeat imminent, he could resign without taking the vote, paving the way for the BJP to form the government. Resigned but not with rebels: Anand Singh and Roshan Baig. The apex court had ruled that the rebels can not be compelled to participate in the Assembly proceedings. The JDS leader made it clear that he was not buying time for the trust vote and was not "power-hungry".
KPCC working president Eshwar Khandre alleged that "horse trading" was still on by BJP, who even tried to lure minister and Bidar North MLA Rahim Khan.
"The petitioners have been constrained to invoke the extraordinary jurisdiction of this court under Article 32 of the Constitution of India seeking a direction from this court to conduct a floor test forthwith in the Karnataka Assembly", according to the plea. Some sources say the CM has said that the position of chief minister will be given to a Congress leader in order to woo the rebels.
"We have committed in front of the Speaker and the House".
