Bengaluru: Five Congress MLAs - including Mr Nagaraj - moved the Supreme Court on the case over their resignations from the Assembly membership. The five legislators - Anand Singh, K. Sudhakar, Mr Nagaraj, N. Muniratna and Roshan Baig - contended in their application that they had submitted their resignations in accordance with Article 190, read with Rule 202 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly.

"Despite submitting the applications in person, Speaker K. Ramesh Kumar has not accepted them. The act of submitting the resignations in person itself shows that the resignation letters were submitted voluntarily and were genuine," they stated.  

 

The Congress, however, brushed aside the five MLAs' plaint, banking on private assurances from Mr Ramalinga Reddy and Mr Roshan Baig that they may not take their running battle with Mr Siddaramaiah to its logical conclusion by voting against the government.
