The Tamil Nadu Congress unit on Saturday urged its national president Rahul Gandhi to contest from the southern state for the April 18 Lok Sabha elections. They said he was first proposed as the next prime minister from their state by the DMK.
Briefing reporters after the CLP meet, Siddaramaiah said he would meet the Assembly Speaker Ramesh Kumar and urge him to take action against Ramesh Jarkiholi, Umesh Jadhav, Mahesh Kumathali and B Nagendra.
Visibly agitated by the woman's questioning, the former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah quickly snatched the microphone from her and along with it pulled a section of her 'dupatta' and forced her to sit down.
"The BJP is indulging openly in horse-trading and is trying to bring down the (JD-S-Congress) coalition government by hook or crook," Congress state unit president Dinesh Gundu Rao told the media in Bengaluru.
