The Supreme Court today refused to urgently list a plea of two Independent Karnataka MLAs seeking holding of floor test forthwith, but said it may consider the listing of the petition on Tuesday.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohtagi, appearing for the two legislators, R Shankar and H Nagesh, said the floor test is being delayed on one pretext or the other.

He said when the Congress-JD(S) coalition can take orders for holding of floor test earlier, then the same order can be issued now.

To this, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said, they will see it on Tuesday.

The two MLAs who withdrew support to the Congress-JD(S) government in Karnataka, moved the top court seeking a direction for conducting a floor test forthwith in the state Assembly.

They said that the state has plunged into a political crisis after they withdrew their support to the government and 16 lawmakers of the ruling coalition tendered their resignations.
