New Delhi: Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Friday, 19 July 2019, questioned the deadlines repeatedly set by State Governor Vajubhai Vala to complete the trust vote in the Assembly and moved the Supreme Court underscoring that the Governor cannot instruct the House regarding the manner in which the confidence motion has to be taken up.

The Karnataka Chief Minister has also sought clarification on the apex court’s July 17 order which said that the 15 rebel MLAs cannot be compelled to attend the proceedings of the House.

Kumaraswamy said in his plea that the Governor sent a communication Thursday directing that the confidence motion and the trust vote should be held before 1:30 pm on Friday. Later another communication was sent by the Governor asking that the trust vote be conducted by 6 pm.

Karnataka Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar has reacted saying that the trust vote will take place only at the end of the debate.
