9 Cong MLAs skip legislature session, keep coalition on edge

Thursday, February 07, 2019

Bengaluru: Ignoring whip, nine Congress MLAs in Karnataka skipped the legislature sitting yesterday, keeping the ruling coalition on tenterhooks on the opening day of the budget session.

The 9 Congress MLAs included the 4 Ramesh Jarkiholi, Umesh G Jadhav, B Nagendra, Mahesh Kumathalli, who had skipped the Jan 18 Congress legislature party (CLP) meeting, official and party sources said.

 MLA J N Ganesh, who is declared absconding after an alleged brawl with a colleague lawmaker at a resort recently, was among the absentees.  The whip asking all ruling coalition legislators to be present on all days of the budget session of the assembly was issued on Tuesday amid allegations of renewed bid by BJP to destabilisethe Kumaraswamy ministry.

The joint session of the legislature began on a stormy note with the opposition BJP questioning the legitimacy of the JDS-Congress govt.  Unruly BJP members created a ruckus disrupting the address of Governor Vajubhai Vala, forcing him to cut short his speech and read the last para.
