Karnataka's Congress-Janata Dal Secular coalition has received a new deadline from the governor to prove majority by the end of the day after it ignored the first deadline of 1:30 p.m.

The coalition government said it was bound to follow only the Speaker, who adjourned the house for lunch after a debate.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, in a long speech replete with allegations against the opposition BJP, accused the party of offering "Rs. 40-50 crore" to lawmakers to switch sides.

On a complaint from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the governor had on Thursday written to the Chief Minister: "You have lost the confidence of the house."

The BJP has alleged delaying tactics by the coalition, which appears to be in a minority after losing the support of 18 lawmakers over the past two weeks.
