5 BJP MLAs to join Cong soon: ex-MLA

Former MLA and Congress leader Belur Gopalakrishna said on Saturday that five legislators of the BJP would join the Congress soon. They have already held talks with the party leaders, Gopalakrishna said.

Speaking to mediapersons here, he said BJP was not capable of toppling the coalition government. Now, it is time for 'operation hand,' he said. "Let the leaders of BJP guard their legislators," Gopalakrishna challenged.

Replying to a query, he said the Congress was not ready to welcome Sagar MLA Haratalu Halappa if he wished to join the party.
