Final Countdown for HD Kumaraswamy:- The Congress and JDS alliance is facing a tough time in Karnataka after 15 rebel MLAs from the alliance walked out. All these are residing in Mumbai and they clarified that they have no plans to return back to Bengaluru to participate in the trust vote. Hence HD Kumaraswamy and his alliance winning trust vote is almost impossible now. BJP has been mounting pressure and is in plans to utilize the golden opportunity.
There are talks that Siddaramaih may replace Kumaraswamy as the Chief Minister and the rebel MLAs may return back resolving all the issues. The government may try to prolong the discussion which can delay the confidence motion. The Speaker Ramesh Kumar postponed the proceedings to Monday and the whole state is eagerly waiting to witness the further developments. Earlier before this, the state's Governor Vajubhai Vala wanted to complete the trust vote by Friday. Some big updates are expected today. Seems like HD Kumaraswamy will get his final countdown as the Chief Minister going with the situations.
