With 14 MLAs disqualified, Karnataka Speaker blunts BJP’s counterblow

Speaker Ramesh Kumar’s disqualification order does, however, end any possibility that some of the 14 rebels could be persuaded by the Congress-JDS team to change their mind at a later date and vote against the freshly minted chief minister BS Yediyurappa.

Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar had disqualified three rebels last week and kept disqualification petitions for others pending. This was a message to the 14 that they too would be disqualified from returning to the assembly for its remaining term if they did not fall in line. (ANI Photo)
