The Karnataka Congress on Monday recommended the disqualification of its four MLAs who did not attend the ongoing state budget, as well as the Congress Legislative Party meet ahead of the budget.
The four MLAs -- Ramesh Jarhikoli, Umesh Jadhav, Mahesh Kumatalli and N B Nagendra did not attend the state budget session as well as the CLP meeting despite a whip issued by the party.
CLP leader Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwar met Karnataka Speaker Ramesh Kumar to submit the request for disqualification of the four dissident MLAs from the Karnataka Legislative Assembly. The budget session of the Karnataka Assembly commenced on Wednesday. -- ANI
