Karnataka Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar has summoned 12 rebel MLAs to meet him on Tuesday morning at his office.

The notice has been issued over the petition by coalition leaders seeking disqualification of rebel MLAs.

In the notice, the Speaker asked the rebel MLAs to meet him in his office on Tuesday at 11 AM to record their responses on their disqualification following a plea by the ruling parties (Congress and JD-S) after they defied a whip to be present in the House for the floor test.

The Assembly missed two deadlines on Friday set by Governor Vajubhai Vala for Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy to prove his majority in the state.

Tension in JD(S)-Congress camp and the BJP is apparently at its peak with leaders pulling up their socks and making all-out efforts to fetch numbers. In pursuit, both BJP and Congress leaders simultaneously held legislative party meetings in Bengaluru on Sunday.

All eyes are on Speaker as the Karnataka gears up for the crucial floor test. The BJP has alleged that the Speaker has been delaying the process to gain time. And while the House is preparing for the proceedings of the day, the Speaker is yet to accept the resignations of the rebel MLAs.

The Congress-JDS government that slumped into a minority earlier this month following the resignation of several dissident MLAs is hanging by a thread. Sixteen MLAs from the ruling coalition including 13 Congress and three JD(S) MLAs have resigned.
