K'taka: CM Kumaraswamy moves trust motion; heated debate in Assembly

Karnataka, CM Kumaraswamy, Assembly

Bengaluru : Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Thursday made a passionate speech at the floor of the house in the state assembly while moving a confidence motion to prove majority of the Congress- JD(S) government amidst rebellion by a section of the lawmakers.

Making the opening statement in Vidhana Soudha ahead of the trust vote, Kumaraswamy said, "I haven't come just because there is a question on whether I can run a coalition government or not. Events have shown that even the role of the Speaker has been put under jeopardy by some legislators."

Slamming the BJP of engineering the chaos in Karnataka, the Chief Minister also claimed that the dissenting legislators had moved the apex court with the BJP's assistance. "A situation has been created so that people lose trust in us. Without any discussion they have wanted a trust vote", Kumaraswamy said.

The chief minister emphasised, "I will prove my majority in the house.""I have self-respect and so do my ministers. I have to make some clarifications. Who is responsible for destabilising this government? he asked. ANI
