Amid late Monday night drama in the Karnataka Assembly, Speaker K.R. Ramesh Kumar directed Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy to face floor test on Tuesday by 6 p.m. to prove majority in the House.
“I am adjourning the House nearly at midnight to meet again on Tuesday at 10 a.m. for concluding the debate on the confidence motion by 4 p.m. and holding the floor test by 6 p.m.,” Kumar told the members and left the Assembly premises in a huff.
The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members, who waited since morning for the crucial floor test, protested against the Speaker for adjourning the session without the floor test, he promised them on Friday and throughout the day.
