HC reserves judgement on petition by 5 Independent MLAs
Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday
reserved its judgement on the writ petition filed by the five
Independent MLAs who had challenged Assembly Speaker K G
Bopaiah`s order disqualifying them under the Anti-Defection
A full bench, comprising Justices Mohan Shanthanagoudar,
Abdul Nazeer and A S Bopanna, reserved its orders after
concluding the hearing from both parties.
P M Narendraswamy, Gulihatti D Shekhar, D Sudhakar,
Shivaraj S Thangadagi and Venkataramanappa were disqualified
by Bopaiah on October 10, a day before Chief Minister B S
Yeddyurappa sought the vote of confidence, which he won.
The five legislators, along with 11 BJP rebel MLAs, had
earlier withdrawn support to the Yeddyurappa government by
submitting a letter to Governor H R Bhardwaj.
The Speaker had passed the composite order on separate
writ petitions by two BJP MLAs C T Ravi and D N Jeevaraj, who
is also the Chief Whip of BJP legislature party, and one voter
each from five Assembly constituencies represented by the five
MLAs, seeking their disqualification.
