Siddaramaiah to address newly elected Congress legislators in HyderabadLast updated on May 18, 2018, 06:48 pm
To decide the future course of action, former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah will address a meeting of newly-elected Congress party legislators, who have been camping in Hyderabad, this evening, said JD(S) MLC Basavaraj.
Amid a power struggle in Karnataka, 36 legislators belonging to the JD(S) and 77 of the Congress are currently camping in hotels in Hyderabad.
Here are more details.
Congress leaders were tight lipped about the development
JD(S) MLC Basavaraj said, "We are trying for flight tickets. If we get we will fly. But getting tickets for flight appears to be difficult."
Congress leaders in Telangana, however, are tight-lipped about the developments.
Supreme Court today ordered that a floor test be held in Karnataka assembly at 4 pm tomorrow to confirm whether newly-appointed BJP CM BS Yeddyurappa enjoys a majority.
Hyderabad is chosen as Telangana CM, JD(S) chief were together
Political observers felt Hyderabad had been chosen for keeping the MLAs together owing to the rapport that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had with JD(S) chief and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda.
Rao had recently met Gowda at the latter's residence before the Karnataka polls.
Telangana CM had appealed to Telugu people living in the neighboring state to vote for the JD(S).
