Congress MLA Umesh Jadhav submits resignation to Karnataka assembly speaker, likely to join BJP
In what comes as a setback to the Congress party, Chincholi MLA (Kalburgi) Dr Umesh Jadhav on Monday submitted his resignation to Karnataka Assembly Speaker Ramesh Kumar. Jadhav was one among the dissident MLAs who wanted to go with BJP.
Although Jadhav's resignation will not destabilise the ruling government, Jadhav's move dosent auger well for the grand old party, just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
He is likely to join the BJP and contest against senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge from Kulburgi.
Jadhav had grievances that his work was interfered by Mallikarjun Kharge which he also brought the matter to the notice of state Congress leaders. However, the matter was never addressed.
