Explained: The numbers in the Karnataka government and how it stands


Bengaluru, July 06: With 11 MLAs tendering their resignation from the ruling coalition in Karnataka, the Congress-JD(S) government is on shaky ground. The Speaker Ramesh Kumar conformed that 11 MLAs have tendered their resignations. This comes in the wake of 2 MLAs from the Congress resigning last week.

In the wake of these resignations, there would be no option but to take a trust vote. If the same happens, then there is big trouble for the coalition. Let us take a look at how the numbers stand.
