Bengaluru: The ruling Congress in Karnataka on Friday decided to take legal action against its four ‘rebel’ legislators for defying the party whip to attend the 10-day Budget Session of the Assembly and skipping its legislature party meeting here.
“All the four legislators have written to me informing their inability to attend the ongoing session till February 15.
The four legislators are Ramesh Jarkiholi (Gokak), Mahesh Kumathalli (Athani), Umesh Jadhav (Chincholi) and B. Nagendra (Ballari).
“But when I wrote back to them asking to meet me personally and explain their stand for staying away from the CLP meeting, they remained defiant and did not meet me so far,” said Siddaramaiah.
