New Delhi: Congress Mlas have allegedly indulged in a brawl, landing one of them in hospital. On Sunday, Vijayanagara MLA Anand Singh and Kampi MLA JN Ganesh allegedly fought after a party at the Eagleton Resort in Bengaluru. The two reportedly had an argument over Ganesh trying to defect to the BJP.
According to media reports, JN Ganesh allegedly hit Anand Singh on his head with a liquor bottle during the fight. The Congress Mlas have been cooped up in Eagleton Resort since Friday night after massive speculation that several MLAs were defecting to the BJP. The party issued a whip and flocked its MLAs to Eagleton in a show of strength.

The Congress, however, has denied that the brawl ever took place. Speaking to the media, Water Resource Minister DK Shivakumar denied that the two MLAs were involved in a brawl. “There was no fight, no assault, no liquor bottles; both the MLAs will speak to the media soon,” DK Shivakumar said.
However, several Congress leaders, including DK Shivakumar’s brother and Kanakapura MLA DK Suresh, visited Anand Singh at the hospital.
