Karnataka Crisis: On day of high drama in Mumbai and Bengaluru, two more MLAs resign
Wednesday, 10 July 2019 In a fresh jolt to the wobbly Congress-JDS coalition government in Karnataka, two Congress legislators, Housing minister M T B Nagaraj and K Sudhakar, tendered their resignations Wednesday to the Speaker, taking the number of disgruntled MLAs who have quit to 16.
Senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar was detained outside a Mumbai hotel. Shivakumar was waiting outside the hotel to meet rebel MLAs camped inside. Mumbai police imposed Section 144 outside the hotel after MLAs felt 'threatened'.
