Bengaluru, Jan 19: All the 104 Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs who were staying at Gurugram in Haryana will return to Karnataka, and go to their respective assembly constituencies, State BJP president B S Yeddyurappa, informed here on Friday.
Strongly denying that BJP is trying to topple the JD(S)-Congress government in the state, by luring the MLAs he said that “The Congress leaders are blaming us for their failure to address MLAs grievances”.
Maintaining that BJP is functioning as a responsible Opposition party in the state he said that “Congress leaders need not to have any fear from us over stability of the coalition government”.
He also criticised that the Congress leaders have decided to take their MLAs fearing revolt by some of the MLAs, “And we are not responsible for their in-house problem”.
"The Congress leaders had coerced their MLAs to shift to a Resort" on false assumption of threat from the BJP, he said.
It may be recalled that the Congress has decided to shift its MLAs to a resort located in the outskirts of the city, yesterday, immediately after holding a Special Congress Legislative Party meeting, in which four of the rebel party MLAs stayed away from the meeting.
The MLAs, who had abstained from the meeting are, Ramesh Rarakiholi, Umesh Jadhav, Nagendra and Umesh Kumatalli.
Former Chief Minister, Siddaramaiah, who is also CLP leader has said that notice will be issued seeking explanation from them and disciplinary action would be taken, if satisfactory reply was not received by them. (UNI)
