Cong claims Shah offered Rs 10 cr each to its Guj MLAs

Senior Congress leader B K Hariprasad on Sunday accused the BJP president Amit Shah of offering
Rs 10 crore each to the Congress MLAs in Gujarat to switch their loyalty to the saffron party. 

“That is why 40 MLAs had to be brought here to keep them safe. Three of them stayed back in Gujarat due to unavoidable circumstances,” the Congress leader told reporters on the sidelines of an event at Palace Grounds in Bengaluru.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary Ahmed Patel is contesting the Rajya Sabha elections from Gujarat. “He is an influential leader, but Shah’s hidden agenda is to ensure the minorities don’t win,” Hariprasad said. “The BJP used corrupt ways to win the Rajya Sabha elections in Jharkhand and Haryana as well.”

Hariprasad refuted reports that the Congress MLAs from Gujarat were kept under house arrest here. “I’m in touch with them. They’re all happy,” he said.
