BJP’s Janardhana Reddy tried to buy MLA, claims K’taka Cong; releases audio clip

Bengaluru: The high-voltage political drama in Karnataka continues to intensify with the Congress now claiming that BJP-linked Janardhana Reddy has tried to bribe one of its lawmaker to switch sides.

The allegation comes ahead of the crucial floor test in Karnataka scheduled for 4 pm tomorrow.

Karnataka Congress has released an audio clip where BJP leader Janaradhana Reddy is trying to lure Congress MLA from Raichur Rural by offering money and posts.

"Janaradhana Reddy clearly says he has the backing of BJP President Amit Shah for doing horse trading," Congress alleged in a tweet after its leaders played out the clip at a press conference. 

In the audio clip, Janardhana Reddy, who was removed from the BJP government in 2011 over charges of corruption, can be heard offering money.
