  • In the 2015 Assembly elections, AAP had won 67 of 70 seats. This time, the party is battling an obvious anti-incumbency and a resurgent BJP.

    Responding to a question that other parties might try to poach the sitting legislators, the AAP national convenor said that he hopes they will stay with the party.

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the disqualification of the MLAs -- 14 of the Congress and three belonging to the JDS -- by the then Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar but allowed them to contest the December bypolls. The court struck down the portion of the order of then Speaker by which the legislators were disqualified till the end of the 15th Karnataka Assembly in 2023.

    The MLAs attempted to move the apex court praying for postponement of the December 5 byelection to 15 Assembly seats.

    The court upheld the Speaker's disqualification, but clarified that it will be till their re-election and not till the end of the term of the House as he had ruled. If elected in bypolls, these disqualified Karnataka MLAs can become ministers or hold public office. "We do not appreciate the manner in which the petitioners came to the court," the judge remarked.

    The party sources say that the central leadership and the RSS is not keen to field R Roshan Baig and R Shankar due to various factors. The reason behind the BJP preventing Baig from joining the party is said to be his alleged role in the multi crore IMA financial scam and his name linked to the death of RSS workers in Bengaluru.
