The Karnataka assembly meets today amid questions over the ruling Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition's survival after 18 resignations. Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has tweeted that he is "confident" despite "efforts to destabilise" his government.
"Congress-JDS coalition in the state is going strong despite the efforts to destabilise. We are confident and prepared for a smooth and fruitful conduct of legislative sessions," Mr Kumaraswamy tweeted late last night, hours after he ruled out resigning.
The Congress has ordered its lawmakers to attend the session and so has the JDS, which had put up its members at a resort just outside Bengaluru to keep its flock intact.
