The JD(S)-Congress coalition government in Karnataka plunged into a crisis on Saturday, with 13 MLAs of the alliance submitting their resignation to Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar.

The Congress accused the BJP of trying to topple the coalition government by “buying” MLAs, but the BJP dismissed the allegations saying it had nothing to do with the resignations and blamed the internal feud within the ruling combine for the political instability in the state.

In a shocking move, long-time Congress loyalist and the party’s senior-most leader Ramalinga Reddy also joined hands with the rebels. Congress leaders now feel that if they are able to get Reddy back, they can hold the government together.

Earlier in the day, at least 11 MLAs reached the Vidhana Soudha and submitted their resignations to Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar. Of these, three were JDS MLAs while eight belonged to the Congress.

Ramalinga Reddy, Ramesh Jarakiholi, Mahesh Kumatalli, Shivaram Hebbar, BC Patil, Muniratna, ST Somashekhar, Byrathi Basavaraj, Sowmya Reddy, Pratap Gowda Patil are from the Congress and Narayana Gowda, Gopalaiah and H Vishwanath are from the JDS. Singh had resigned on Monday.
