A powerful BJP MLA Umesh Katti has dropped a bombshell by declaring that the JDS-Congress coalition government in Karnataka will fall in the next 24 hours.
A former minister and an eight-time MLA Katti made this statement in Belgaum on Wednesday.
Addressing media before a gathering of the BJP led by gathering state boss BS Yeddyurappa, he stated, “15 revolt Congress MLAs are in contact with us. They will stop and the HD Kumaraswamy government will fall in the following 24 hours. There will be a BJP government one week from now”.
Nonetheless, Yeddyurappa made light of it asserting that he isn’t keen on toppling the state government. “I want to topple the administration. We are in the resistance party. We will proceed there,” he said.
After HD Kumaraswamy extended his Cabinet by enlisting eight Congress MLAs on last Saturday, the individuals who missed the billet have communicated their hatred in broad daylight prompting hypotheses over the life of the coalition government.
As per some BJP pioneers, 6-8 Congress MLAs are in contact with them and they are trusting that more will join the group of revolutionaries.
State Congress president Dinesh Gundu Rao has tested the BJP to topple the legislature in the event that they have numbers with them. He challenged Katti to leave from his MLA post if the legislature does not fall in the following 24 hours.
Addressing News18, he said “The BJP is disappointed. It is having a go at everything for power. Be that as it may, no Congress MLA is prepared to run with them. After a mortifying thrashing in late surveys, the BJP is declining crosswise over India. Who will run with a losing party? Just to keep baffled BJP MLAs with them, party pioneers put forth such expressions occasionally. No compelling reason to give much significance to them”.
At any rate about six hopefuls who couldn’t make it to the Cabinet at first raised a flag of revolt. They appear to have relaxed their remain after state Congress pioneers driven by previous boss pastor Siddaramaiah addressed them promising clerical compartments in future.
The BJP has been undermining to unseat Kumaraswamy as far back as he came to control by toppling Yeddyurappa’s 56-hour government after May Assembly decisions.
In the 224-part Karnataka Assembly, the decision Congress-JDS together have 120 MLAs as against BJP’s 104.
