Karnataka Congress MLA hospitalised after brawl in resort,

A Karnataka Congress lawmaker was hospitalised on Sunday (January 20) after he got into a brawl with a party colleague last evening at the Eagleton Resort.

Taking a jibe at the party after the incident, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said “all is not well” within the Congress party and it was unfortunate that Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dinesh Gundu Rao could not stop the incident.

Local media reported that Congress lawmaker Anand Singh was hospitalised after being hit on the head with a bottle by colleague JN Ganesh at the resort where all the lawmakers were moved on Friday.

Speaking on the matter, Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara said he does not have any information of Anand Singh being hospitalised. “Anand Singh is in hospital according to media. I don’t have info. If he has gone I’ll get details,” he said.

“I tried to talk to DK Shivakumar to ask what happened. I couldn’t get him,” he added.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar rubbished reports of a brawl between the two leaders.
