The political high drama in the state took an ugly turn in the day when Congress MLA Dr.K Sudhakar was roughed while he was returning after submitting his resignation letter to the Speaker.

In another incident, Congress minister U T Khadar and BJP MLA Renukachaya had a verbal duel at the entrance of Vidhana Soudha.

Meanwhile, in Mumbai Karnataka Minister D. K. Shivakumar and his colleagues from Maharashtra Congress Milind Deora and Naseem Khan were detained today by the police outside the hotel where rebel MLAs are putting up amid high drama.

Shivakumar, the Congress’ troubleshooter, had been camping outside the Renaissance Hotel in Powai since morning to meet the rebel MLAs.
