Belagavi, Sep 29: Senior BJP leader and Rajya Sabha member Prabhakar Kore on Saturday challenged KPCC women's wing president and Assembly member Laxmi Hebbalkar to disclose the name of the BJP leader who had lured her to join the party.
Ms Hebbalkar had alleged on Friday that a BJP leader had offered her Rs 30 crore and a cabinet berth if she defected to BJP and trigger the fall of JD(S)-Congress government in Karnataka. Speaking to reporters Kore demanded that the Congress leader should disclose the name of the BJP leader who was in touch with her and offered her the huge sum.
''If there is any truth in Ms Hebbalkar's claim, let her disclose who approached her to defect to BJP,'' he said. (UNI)
