The state's Governor Vajubhai Vala stepped in and asked HD Kumaraswamy to prove his majority on the floor today in the house by 1.30 PM.
The Governor sent a letter to the Chief Minister and the Speaker which said "The fact that 15 members have met me and tendered their resignations and coupled with 2 members have withdrawn their support and other attendant circumstances do prima facie indicate that you have lost majority/confidence of the House”. The Governor said that this cannot go on in a democratic setup governed by the Constitution of the country said the Governor.
