#KarnatakaMLAs: Sajan Poovayya making submissions
#KarnatakaMLAs: This Court had directed not to touch on disqualification, decide on resignation, Sajan Poovayya.
#KarnatakaMLAs: The Court had asked Speaker to decide the issue of resignation only.

Karnatala MLAs disqualification case in Supreme Court: Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi making submissions.
We are only concerned now about judicial review of Speaker's decision.

Since case was filed before Speaker had decided, there was other issues as well. Those issues which had arisen before the Speaker took his decision have become academic now, Rohatgi.
#KarnatakaMLAs: A member of house has an indefeasible right to resign. The only excpetion to it is that there should be no coercion, no gun to his temple, Rohatgi.
