Our MLAs are with us: DK Shivakumar

ANI  |  Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India] 

A day after information surfaced about camping its MLAs in Gurugram, in fear of poaching by Congress, Minister and DK on Tuesday said that all 104 MLAs are still with the party.

"Our MLAs are with us, we are answerable to the people of the constituency, they are not doing any dirty is trying to create a hype in the country on Mahagathbandhan," told ANI.

MLA told the media, "Nobody has contacted me; I am very much in the party."

The charges of horse-trading were triggered after three MLAs visited on Monday, reportedly along with some MLAs. This was followed by the Congress alleging that the BJP was trying to poach the ruling party's MLAs to destabilise the JD(S)-Congress alliance government in the state.

BJP's Karnataka unit of Opposition in the Assembly BS told media yesterday, "There is no truth in all these rumours. Kumaraswamy is himself trying his level best to contact our MLAs, by offering ministership and money. That is why we are together here (in the NCR). We are not in touch with any of their MLAs. We are only focused on keeping our MLAs energised. We will stay here for one or two days."

HD Kumaraswamy accused of fabricating stories, adding that there is no need for the Congress-JD(S) alliance to poach on any party's lawmakers.
