Bengaluru: The Karnataka assembly was adjourned briefly on Monday as Congress and JDS members demanded more time to discuss the confidence motion moved by Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.

As Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar asked the ruling coalition members to conclude their speeches quickly so that the trust vote process could be completed Monday itself, there were protests from them.

The coalition members raised slogans saying, “we want justice, we want discussion.”

JDS and Congress members said the Supreme Court itself had not shown urgency on the issue as it had refused urgent hearing of pleas by two Independent MLAs for floor test forthwith.

As pandemonium broke out, the speaker adjourned the House for 10 minutes.
