  • | Friday | 25th September, 2020

Congress stalwart and leader of opposition Siddaramiah has claimed that the motion will witness cross-voting from the treasury benches in favour of the motion.

A no-confidence motion moved by the Congress against the BS Yediyurappa government has been admitted in Karnataka Assembly on Thursday.

However, the stand of JDS over the no-confidence motion is still not clear.

Earlier in the day, leader of opposition Siddaramiah speaking after a meeting of the Congress legislature party said that the state government had failed on all fronts and that is why the party has decided to move the no-confidence motion.

“There has been corruption in the procurement of equipment for Covid treatment, government officials are making money by indulging in transfer business and allocation of posts. Yediyurappa and his family are interested in only making money. Governance has collapsed,” he claimed.

In the assembly, when Congress members stood up to insist on the motion being taken up for discussion immediately, ruling party members objected to it. The Speaker continued with the listed business of some bills to be moved and refused to take up the motion immediately, saying it was under his consideration and he would decide when time should be allocated for the same. The assembly is scheduled to wrap up the monsoon session by Saturday.

Congress stalwart and leader of opposition Siddaramiah has claimed that the motion will witness cross-voting from the treasury benches in favour of the motion.

In the 224-member Karnataka assembly, the BJP has 117 members, Congress 67, JDS 33, three independents and four vacant seats.
