The Supreme Court on Friday (October 25) reserved its verdict on a batch of petitions challenging the disqualification of 17 Karnataka MLAs before the trust vote moved by the previous H D Kumaraswamy government.

The rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs were disqualified by the then Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar.
Kumaraswamy had resigned after losing a trust vote, which paved the way for the BJP-led government in the state under B S Yediyurappa.
