  • Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati has directed the lone BSP MLA in Karnataka to vote in favour of the HD Kumaraswamy government in the state.

  • N Mahesh is the lone BSP MLA in Karnataka.

  • The Kumaraswamy-led government has been hit by a spate of resignations by the party's rebel MLAs.

Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati has directed the lone BSP MLA in Karnataka to vote in favour of the HD Kumaraswamy government in the state.

"BSP national president Mayawati has directed the BSP MLA to vote in support of the Kumaraswamy government," the BSP chief said Sunday in a tweet.

N Mahesh is the lone BSP MLA in Karnataka.

The fate of the fragile HD Kumaraswamy led Congress-JDS coalition government in Karnataka is likely to be decided on the Assembly floor on Monday.

State Governor Vajubhai Vala had on Friday asked the state chief minister twice to wrap up the ongoing debate on his trust motion in the Assembly, which, however, failed to conclude the proceeding on the day.

The Kumaraswamy-led government has been hit by a spate of resignations by the party's rebel MLAs.
