Bengaluru: Ahead of his meeting with the disgruntled Congress and JD(S) MLAs, Karnataka Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar on Thursday said the legislators approaching the Supreme Court made things appear "murky."
The Congress and JD(S) MLAs, who had resigned from the Assembly are slated to meet the Speaker by 6 pm, in accordance with the Apex court.
I don't know why they moved the Supreme Court to meet me," Kumar told reporters outside the Vidhana Soudha here.
"There was no need for them (MLAs who resigned) to approach the Court (for a direction) that I should meet them.
The Supreme Court Thursday allowed 10 rebel MLAs of the Congress-JD(S) coalition in Karnataka to meet the assembly Speaker at 6 pm to convey to him their decision to resign.
