Congress’ Siddaramaiah yesterday said after the CLP meeting that “76 MLAs were present physically out of the 79. I will send notice to absentees and seek an explanation. Then I will speak to the high command.”
Former CM of Karnataka further claimed, “Including Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and central ministers are also involved in this process of destabilising our Govt. They approached our MLAs with huge offers of 50-70 crores. I have proof. How come a Chowkidar has so much money?”
