Congress-JD(S) MLAs Chant Anti-Governor Slogans Inside Vidhan Soudha As Trust Vote Deadline EndsScene from Karnataka Assembly (Pic via Twitter)

The Karnataka state assembly witnessed loud ruckus on Friday (18 July) after the Congress and JD(S) MLAs began chanting anti-Governor slogans like “Go back Governor” and “Down Down Rajpal”.

Senior Congress MLA Krishna Byre Gowda while speaking in the assembly additionally claimed that the Governor has limits to his power and “cannot manufacture any business for the House to transact through a so-called message”, Indian Express reported.

The Governor’s 1.30 PM deadline to hold the trust vote as a result ended without any resolution and the assembly speaker K R Ramesh Kumar stated in response that the vote won’t be held until and unless the discussion is over.

This might take some time as reports have claimed that the Congress has lined up at least 20 more speakers.

The assembly was later adjourned till 3 PM by the speaker who has now sought an appointment with Governor Vajubhai Vala.
