New Delhi, Feb 14 (ANI): The Karnataka High Court will on Monday pronounce its order on the writ petition by five Independent MLAs who had challenged Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah's order disqualifying them under the Anti-Defection Law.

A full bench, comprising Justices A S Bopanna, Mohan Shantanagoudar and S Abdul Nazeer, had on February 1, reserved its orders after concluding hearing from both parties.

The five MLAs P M Narendraswamy, Shivaraj S Thangadagi, Venkataramanappa, D Sudhakar and Gulihatti D Shekhar were disqualified along with eleven BJP MLAs after they withdrew their support to B S Yeddyurappa government.

The 16 MLAs were disqualified on the basis of a complaint filed by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on October 7. The disqualifications came on the eve of the BJP government seeking a trust vote.

The High Court had upheld the disqualification of the eleven BJP MLAs and their appeal challenging the order is pending before the Supreme Court. (ANI)
