The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) suspended Kampli MLA J N Ganesh for assaulting fellow Congress MLA Anand Singh from the Ballari district, inside a resort in Bidadi which is present in the outskirts of the city.
Congress Legislative Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah issued an order in this regard and KPCC president Dinesh Gundurao approved the same.According to the Congress leaders, Dinesh Gudu Rao formed a committee led by DCM Dr. G Parameshwara to conduct an inquiry against J N Ganesh.
K J George and Krishna Bairegowda will be in this committee. "As requested, the committee can furnish a close report on the entire episode in the subsequent seven days," said Dinesh Gundu Rao.
If sources within the Congress are to be believed, following the episode, it was decided at a CLP meeting held at Bidadi on Monday that no matter what happens within the state, they will not continue 'resort politics'. It is the responsibility of the JDS to save this coalition government, henceforth there'll not be any resort politics by the Congress," said a senior leader who attended the meeting.
