Bengaluru: The Congress, the BJP and the JDS are the three parties currently supporting resort policies to save their party in Karnataka. The Congress and the JDS had already sent their MLAs to the resort, now the BJP is also afraid that the ruling party may not break its MLAs. The BJP's concern was compounded when Karnataka CM Kumaraswamy said he was ready for a floor test. The BJP has then appointed its MLAs to the Ramda Resort near Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, the Congress has stopped its MLAs at Taj Vivanta Yashwantpur. The Congress is trying its best to persuade the MLAs who resigned from the party. On Saturday, Karnataka government minister DK Shivkumar arrived to meet MTB Nagaraj, the MLA who resigned from the party. Shortly after, Deputy CM G. Parmeshwar also reached the house of MTB Nagaraj and tried to persuade him. The JDS has arranged for its MLAs to stay at the famous Golfshire hotel.
In the political developments that began eight days ago, 16 MLAs from Karnataka have resigned so far. Of these, 13 are Congress MLAs and 3 are JDS MLAs. However, Karnataka Assembly Speaker Ramesh Kumar has not accepted the resignation of any MLA so far. On Friday, the case reached the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has ordered to maintain the status quo by Tuesday. The speaker will no longer be able to disqualify these MLAs till July 16.
