Endless talks and behind-the-scenes dramas


In-depth interviews took place Monday night after President K.R. Ramesh Kumar adjourned for 10 minutes. But it took almost two hours to resume, even as the BJP camp hoped to put an end to the vote of confidence.

While the leader of the congressional legislature, Siddaramaiah, met with congressional legislators in the House during the break, parallel meetings were held in the prime minister's chamber, with key ministers meeting Prime Minister HD Kumaraswamy to develop strategies.

Later, a delegation of senior coalition government leaders, including Mr. Kumaraswamy, Mr. Siddaramaiah and Deputy Chief Minister G. Parameshwara, met with the President.

Sources stated that, although the BJP delegation made it clear to the President that it did not wish to yield and allow the House to adjourn to the day without the vote of confidence being put to the vote Janata Dal (secular) and congressional leaders tried to impress the president. President to raise the House on Tuesday so that the vote of confidence can be taken into account on Tuesday.

Sources JD (S) said the adjournment was based on the fact that the Supreme Court would rule on the party's powers to deliver the whip on Tuesday morning and that they could wait until then. "The rebels can go back to the court order," they said.

Another point that they raised before the President was that, since he had asked the rebels to appear before him Tuesday, the House should wait for their return. "While the President has allowed Mr. Siddaramaiah's point of order to give the whip, the rebels should have a reasonable time to return," sources said.

According to Congressional and JD (S) sources, while leaders were fighting a legal battle in the Supreme Court and in the House, Kumaraswamy, who called on the rebels to return on Sunday, is still trying to join the rebels. "Mr. Kumaraswamy is convinced to convince at least four legislators to come back, and additional time in the House would bode well for the coalition," sources said.

While the JD (S) and congressional legislators continued to speak in the House, the delay seemed to frustrate the BJP camp that was waiting for a Monday night closure as promised by Mr. Ramesh Kumar, Mr. Siddaramaiah and Mr. Kumaraswamy.
