We have confidence, so we are moving confidence motion: Congress leader Siddaramaiah | India News

BENGALURU: Senior Congress leader Siddaramiah on Friday said the

decision to seek a trust vote

by the coalition government headed by H D Kumaraswamy was taken together by the two ruling partners and asserted they had the numbers.

The Congress Legislature Party Leader also said he had been talking to disgruntled party MLAs barring

Roshan Baig because he has been suspended.

Yesterday, we took the decision (on the trust vote) after discussions, the former chief minister told reporters here.
Kumaraswamy, whose government is teetering on the brink of collapse after 16 MLAs of the ruling combine resigned, made the announcement about trust vote in the assembly earlier on Friday.
Replying to questions, Siddaramaiah said without numbers or confidence none will seek a trust vote.
“We have confidence, so we are moving the confidence motion,” he added.
On how the ruling combine would muster the numbers, Siddaramaiah said, “how can we disclose now? You will come to know when the vote of confidence is moved. Things like how it will happen, who will be present cannot be disclosed now.”
To a question, he ruled out the possibility of a counter-operation to the alleged toppling bid of BJP, saying his party did not beleive in operations.
He refused to comment on the Supreme Court ordering status quo in the matter of resignation and disqualification of ten rebel MLAs.
However, he added the Speaker was empowered under the anti-defection law to decide on disqualification of MLAs.
