The Congress-JD(S) led government in Karnataka has lost the trust vote in the Assembly on Tuesday. The coalition got 99 votes, while BJP got 105 votes.
It may be mentioned here that with the resignation of 16 MLAs, the Congress-JD(S) coalition has been reeling on the edge for weeks now.
Moments before the trust vote, Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy said that he has no intention of dragging the trust vote, and he will happily quit.
“The other day, a channel ran a story saying we are pushing for load shedding. CM was pushing the state into darkness. Should I have become the CM to get such a certificate? Today, I am ready to quit happily,” Kumaraswamy said.
