Our government stable, why BJP hiding its MLAs: Kharge


New Delhi, Jan 16: Amid reports of poaching legislators by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Congress on Wednesday said was no threat to the coalition government in Karnataka.

Addressing a press conference, Senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge stated all the 118 MLAs of the coalition government are intact and questioned why the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has kept its MLAs holed up in Gurugram’s resort, far away from Karnataka.

“I have spoken to Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, Deputy Chief Minister G. Parameshwara as well as Congress General Secretary K.C. Venugopal. They all confirmed the stability of Karnataka government. All our 118 MLAs are intact,” Kharge asserted.

Earlier in the day, Kumaraswamy had also assured that there was no threat to his government.

The Congress leader accused the BJP of misleading people and MLAs.

“BJP is trying to mislead through media by saying they are in contact with our MLAs. This is a lie”.

Kharge further said that “From threatening our MLAs with IT and ED raids to luring with money, the BJP’s efforts to destabilise the Karnataka government have doomed and that is why they have now hidden their MLAs in a resort in Gurugram”.
