In a blow to the Congress-JDS coalition in Karnataka, two MLAs Tuesday withdrew support to the government headed by H D Kumaraswamy. H Nagesh (Independent) and R Shankar (KPJP) have written to governor Vajubhai Vala conveying their decision.
In separate identical letters, available to the media here, the lawmakers said they were withdrawing support extended to the coalition government of the Congress and the JDS with immediate effect.
The MLAs, who are now staying in a Mumbai hotel, requested the governor to take "necessary action."
Both the Congress and the BJP have been accusing each other of trying to lure legislators.
