In a blow to the Congress-JDS coalition in Karnataka, two MLAs Tuesday withdrew support to the government headed by H.D. Kumaraswamy.
Conveying their decision as final, H. Nagesh (Independent) and R. Shankar (KPJP) have written to Governor Vajubhai Vala.
In separate identical letters, available to the media, the lawmakers said they were withdrawing support extended to the coalition government of the Congress and the JDS with immediate effect.
The MLAs, who are presently staying in a Mumbai hotel, requested the governor to take “necessary action”.
Both the Congress and the BJP have been accusing each other of trying to lure legislators. BJP MLAs are presently camping in Gurgaon, amid reports that some Congress and Independent MLAs are staying at a hotel in Mumbai.
