The Congress said that their MLAs were held hostage in Karnataka
The Congress today said its MLAs from Madhya Pradesh who are in Bengaluru are held hostage and threatened to go to court if they are not released.
The Congress has claimed that its MLAs were tricked or bribed into going to Bengaluru and they are now ready to return to the party fold.
At a press conference this evening, the party produced a video of an MLA pushing and shouting at a policeman, claiming it was evidence that the MLAs were being confined to the resort by force. Sources said the MLA was Jitu Patwari.
On Monday, 17 MLAs, loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia, were flown into Bengaluru by a chartered flight and a day later, 21 MLAs sent in their letters of resignation.
