When answering media questions, DK Shivakumar said, "All is well." The government will run for five years. We are all fine. All issues have been resolved. we have worked. We will sit and listen to all the MLAs. There is no problem in the government.'' The number of congress MLAs in the 68-member assembly is now reduced to 34 as its six rebel MLAs have been disqualified. Sudhir Sharma, one of the rebel MLAs, said that he will challenge this decision in the court.
