Rs 1 crore, 11-day jolly stay for 40 legislators

 
One of the MLAs said the daily room rent was Rs 8,000. Kudligi MLA Nagendra, a staunch follower of the Reddys, settled the bills, but it is not clear who paid the money.

When Deccan Herald contacted, many MLAs resorted to silence and a few others were reluctant to divulge the details. Sports Minister Goolihatti Shekar said, “I can’t share everything about our stay. Most of the MLAs remained in the rooms and hardly went out. Only Renukacharya and Beluru Gopalakrishna used to go out and interact with the media.”
MLA Renukacharya had said he and his friends were studying rural development in Hyderadad. When asked about the villages he visited, he hadn’t not replied. On the findings of his study, he had said he would hold a press meet soon in Bangalore.

The MLAs had jowar roti supplied from Basavana Bagewadi, about 500 kms from Hyderabad. S K Bellubbi’s brother supplied 500 rotis, butter, curd and different varieties of chutneys from his residence once in two days in the jeep. “This is the first time I stayed in a hotel for such a long time. Only twice I had food served in the hotel. I had asked my family members to send roti to the hotel,” he said. As they had no access to Kannada news channels in the hotel, they relied on their cellphones to keep themselves updated.
