Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy on Friday announced that a meeting of the coordination and monitoring committee of the coalition government will be held on December 5.

The announcement came even as rumours flew thick and fast that a few legislators in the Congress camp were shifting to Mumbai ahead of the December 10 Assembly session.

The day began with reports that a few Congress MLAs had met Municipal Administration Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi in Bengaluru to express their displeasure about the delay in the expansion of the state Cabinet.

They were also unhappy that their request on development issues pertaining to their constituencies, among others, to Kumaraswamy were left unattended.

However, later in the day, Jarkiholi denied reports that he was planning to shift the legislators to Mumbai. “I have been here at my home since the last two days, while there is a propaganda on going to Mumbai. It is not true,” Jarkiholi told reporters.

He charged that attempts were being made by some “self-proclaimed influential party leaders” to damage his image. Though Jarkiholi did not name anyone, it was apparent that it was directed towards Water Resources Minister D K Shivakumar.

Conceding that he had some differences with the party, Jarkiholi clarified that the issues have been resolved after mediation by former chief minister Siddaramaiah and senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge.

Kumaraswamy told reporters that the coordination panel headed by Siddaramaiah will meet in Bengaluru on December 5 and will discuss all issues pertaining to the coalition partners.
