Mumbai: Congress MLA Bheema Naik, who is said to be among the sulking party legislators in Karnataka, on Wednesday said he was very much in the Congress and no one from the BJP has contacted him with any offers in the context of allegations that the Kumaraswamy government was under threat. “I am in Congress. No offer has been made to me. Nobody has approached me. I am in touch with my party (Congress) leaders,” he told the media.
Naik, elected from Hagaribommanahalli in Bellary district, is among the five-six Congress MLAs who are said to be unhappy at not being made ministers in the recent reshuffle of the Congress-JD(S) coalition ministry. The Chief Minister and Congress leaders have alleged that the BJP was attempting to destabilise their government and as part of those plans they have taken nearly 100 MLAs to Gurugram where they have been put up in a luxury hotel.
