Karnataka's Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition received a new deadline from the governor to prove its majority today, hours after it ignored the first deadline of 1:30 pm. "Kindly prove your majority by the end of today," Governor Vajubhai Vala wrote in his second letter since yesterday to Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy. The chief minister said: "The second love letter has hurt me." The coalition government says it is bound to follow only the Speaker, who approved a prolonged debate before the vote. The coalition has also asked the Supreme Court for a clarification on an order that gave Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar the freedom to decide on the status of rebel lawmakers who have endangered the government.
