The Speaker had excluded these MLAs from the sixteenth Karnataka Legislative Assembly. On July 25 and 28 this year under the Tenth Schedule, or the counter surrender law, and also barred from contesting elections during the tenure of the current Assembly.

The judgment is a major lift for the BS Yediyurappa government in the state. As the MLAs 14 from the Congress and 3 from the JDs, were confident about the tickets by the BJP to challenge the by-elections to 15 seats.

The administrators had stopped the Assembly as a major aspect of a BJP endeavor to topple the legislature. Congress and JD-S had looked for the MLAs exclusion and a bar on their challenging decisions.

The MLAs had avoided a trust vote, opposing their party whips. Prompting the breakdown of the HD Kumaraswamy-drove Congress-JDS government and making ready for the BJP-drove government in the state under B S Yediyurappa.
