Amid claims of MLAs being swoon by opponents in Karnataka, Congress Party leader MB Patil claimed that six Bharatiya Janata Party leaders were in touch with his party.
"We are all together. All this (Congress and JD (S) leaders changing sides) is false news. In fact, there are six BJP people who are in touch with us," Patil told media in Bengaluru.
Meanwhile, Congress MLA NA Harris accused the BJP of doing "bad politics", and added that the grand old party would not stoop down to that level.
"We have to protect the verdict of the people. They (BJP) are doing bad politics. We don't have to stoop down to their level. We are 118 in number; we don't want anyone," he said, adding that he was not called to any resort, against reports stating otherwise.
Two JD(S) MLAs, namely Raja Venkatappa Nayaka and Venkata Rao Nadagouda, are missing from the meeting, while just 66 out of the 78 MLAs attended the legislative meeting at the Karnataka Party Congress Committee office.
