Bengaluru (August 22,2023) : Speculation is rife that several BJP MLAs in Karnataka are willing to join the Congress party. This comes amid the ongoing political turmoil in the state, which has been witnessing a series of resignations from the BJP.

According to sources, at least four BJP MLAs are in touch with the Congress leadership and are likely to join the party soon. These MLAs represent constituencies in different parts of the state, including Bengaluru, Mysuru, and Hubli-Dharwad. The Congress is reportedly trying to woo these MLAs by offering them plum posts in the party. The party is also hoping to capitalize on the growing discontent within the BJP ranks in Karnataka.

The BJP has been facing a series of challenges in Karnataka in recent months. The party has been hit by a number of resignations, including that of former Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa. The party is also facing a rebellion from a section of its MLAs, who are unhappy with the leadership. The Congress is hoping to exploit the BJP's instability and emerge as the main opposition party in Karnataka. The party is also gearing up for the 2023 assembly elections in the state. If the BJP MLAs do join the Congress, it will be a major setback for the ruling party. It will also boost the morale of the Congress and make it a more formidable force in Karnataka politics.
