Karnataka Speaker has a Message for Rebel MLAs:- Karnataka politics witnessed tense situations after 15 MLAs walked out of Congress and JDS alliance. Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has been asked to prove his majority in the house and the discussions are on from the past four days. Karnataka Speaker Ramesh Kumar asked all the rebel MLAs to appear before him without fail on Tuesday at 11 AM. The Congress party filed a petition on 11 July seeking the disqualification of rebel MLAs who had submitted their resignations and left to stay in a hotel in Mumbai.
With BJP mounting pressure on Speaker, Ramesh Kumar wanted the MLAs to attend before him personally without fail. All the rebel MLAs have been staying in Mumbai posing threat if they enter Karnataka. The fifteen rebel MLAs are - Ramesh Jarkiholi (Gokak), Byrathi Basavaraj (KR Puram), ST Somashekhar (Yeshwanthpura), BC Patil (Hirekerur), Shivaram Hebbar (Yellapur), Prathapgouda Patil (Maski), Mahesh Kumathalli (Athani), K Gopalaiah (Mahalakshmi Layout), AH Vishwanath (Hunasuru) and Narayana Gowda (Krishanarajapete), Munirathna Naidu (RR Nagar), Roshan Baig (Shivajinagar), MTB Nagaraj (Hoskote), K Sudhakar (Chikkaballapura) and Anand Singh (Vijayanagara).
