The Supreme Court will pronounce its verdict on the ongoing political turmoil in the Karnataka state on July 17 at 10.30 AM.
The Supreme Court bench headed by the Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi was hearing a petition pushed by the Karnataka rebel MLAs on Tuesday. Senior lawyer Abhisekh Sanghvi representing the Karnataka speaker K R Ramesh Kumar asked for a day’s time for the disqualification of the 16 rebel MLAs.
However, the Karnataka Chief Minister’s counsel has alleged the rebel legislators of conspiring scheme to “destabilise” the government.
Meanwhile, the Karnataka CM H D Kumaraswamy’s JD(S)- Congress coalition government is facing the numbers game to prove its majority in the state’s assembly against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led B S Yeddyurappa.
