K'taka: Opposition numbers take a dip
The strength of the opposition dropped further in Karnataka with another Congress man joining the BJP today. Narayan Swamy was the second Congress MLA after S Ramachandrappa to join the BJP. With this Lleislative Assembly where the magic number required today is 106.
The Congress has been protesting these developments and had even courted arrest a day ago in this regard. The BJP has however accursed the opposition of trying and bribing their mlas and cause in stability to the government in Karnataka.
Meanwhile the high command of the BJP is yet to consider the plea of the rebel BJP MLA's who had said that they had only sought a change of the leader and had never indulged in anti party activities. The high command is likely to await the verdict of the high court which has reserved orders on their dis qualification plea.
