The Karnataka assembly was adjourned close to midnight on Monday, with Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar giving a fresh deadline for the trust vote -- 6 pm on Tuesday. "I do not want this 11 pm thing again. Everyone has health conditions," the Speaker said at the end of a turbulent day. The house witnessed chaos as the Speaker turned down Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy's request for more time before the floor test and the BJP insisted on sitting till midnight if need be. The coalition has been asked to prove majority after its 16 lawmakers resigned and two independents withdrew support. The BJP has accused the Chief Minister of delaying the trust vote in hopes of reprieve from the Supreme Court.
