Bangalore: The rebel MLA from Karnataka, who is in Mumbai, will leave for Bengaluru after the BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa being sworn in as the Chief Minister. This was disclosed by party sources on Tuesday. A BJP leader said that JD(s), led by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, who had stayed in a luxurious hotel since earlier this month, was... Congress is "very happy" after the coalition government failed to win a confidence vote. The leader pointed to the Kumaraswamy-led government's failure to win a confidence vote in the Karnataka Assembly on Tuesday evening, saying, "They (the rebel MLAs) got what they wanted."
He said the MLA will leave Mumbai after Yeddyurappa was sworn in as the Chief Minister. The rebels had earlier denied that the BJP had any role in withdrawing their resignations and support from the government. Ahead of the crucial power test to decide the future of the Kumaraswamy government, Yeddyurappa had alleged that the ruling coalition was delaying unnecessarily despite knowing that the whip issued to the MLAs of the ruling coalition was of no use. The government was in trouble after the resignation of 14 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs. Kumaraswamy had 99 votes in favor and 105 against. Kumaraswamy then submitted his resignation to Governor Vajubhai Wala in the night.
