Karnataka Cabinet Meets Amid Crisis, Says Confident About Survival
Expressing confidence that the government would survive, the cabinet that met under the leadership of Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said it was ready to face a no-confidence motion, if moved by the opposition BJP.
Speaking to reporters after the cabinet meeting here, he claimed that this was the sixth or seventh attempt to destabilise the government.
The resignation of 16 Congress-JD(S) MLAs has pushed the 13-month old coalition government to the brink of collapse.
BJP has demanded the resignation of Chief Minister Kumaraswamy, saying his government has "lost majority."
We will give them (opposition) all the opportunity...we are even ready for a vote on it," he added.
