In the evening, Shankar also resigned and said he would extend support to the BJP, which has 105 MLA in the Assembly, eight short of the majority.

The former minister was recently suspended from the party for anti-party activities. And if Nagesh supports the BJP, then the BJP will have 106 members. "Further decisions will be taken at our legislature party meeting scheduled on Tuesday once again".

JD (S) MLA Zameer Ahmed spoke to reporters on Monday, saying his party's remaining legislators will be shifted to an undisclosed resort in Kodagu to prevent them from being poached. He said that the aircraft was a commercial charter that had been used by Congress Ministers in the past.

The Janta Dal (United) and Congress later came together to form the government, with the support of two independents and a member of the Bahujan Samaj Party.

The idea is to never quit", said Eddie. "She's such a gracious young lady, great sportsmanship", he said to CNN . I have a lot of energy, and I'm used to playing two matches a day [in the junior tennis circuit]".

The All India Congress Committee general secretary attacked Bhartiya Janata Party by alleging that the party wants to destabilise state governments to get majority in Rajya Sabha.

"We have evidence to prove that the MLAs did not resign voluntarily but have been instigated by the Bharatiya Janata Party and this is only a way to defect", said a senior Congress leader. He said he was working under enormous pressure and the Congress leaders expected him to behave like their subordinate. "Everybody knows whatever is happening in Karnataka is because of the ambitions of certain leaders of their own parties", he told PTI. The party leaders also tried to reach out to the dissenting MLAs and pacify them. It is they who are actually running the coalition, which was [anyway] against the mandate of the people. DK Suresh's statement came moments after all Congress ministers in the state's coalition government were invited for breakfast at the house of Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara, who offered to resign if this helped save the government. The cabinet will be restructured soon to keep the government stable. He also requested all the rebel MLAs to reconsider their decision and "strengthen our government".

The latest resignation comes as yet another blow to the state government which is facing the biggest challenge in the 13 months of its existence.

Earlier, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary of Congress raised the issue and accused the BJP of hatching a conspiracy to destabilize the Karnataka government.
