News Epicentre: Endgame For HDK?

Jul 23, 2019 10:39 PM IST India India

The political drama in Karnataka seems to be reaching the final act... The Speaker has called for a floor test immediately to end the tussle for power in the state - Section 144 has been imposed in Bengaluru for 48 hours - all pubs and wine shops have been shut - the JDS is adamant on letting the discussion continue - clearly buying time to keep the government afloat while the Congress MLAs have called on the party leadership to issue a whip to the rebel MLAs. Congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar warned the BJP saying the rebels would betray the party as well - while Congress workers continued their protest in Mumbai outside the hotel where the rebel MLAs are staying. The Speaker earlier threatened to resign if the floor test was not conducted - all eyes are on the Vidhana Soudha - will the numbers finally declare the victor in this game for power?
