SC says rebel MLAs can’t be compelled to participate in trust vote
The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that 15 Congress MLAs, who have tendered their resignations, cannot be compelled to participate in the proceedings of the House.
The top court also said the Speaker is free to decide on the resignation of the MLAs as per the Constitution.
According to the order, MLAs are free to skip the trust vote in the Karnataka Assembly slated for tomorrow.
The court was hearing petitions filed by 15 rebel MLAs, seeking directions to the Assembly Speaker to accept their resignations.
