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.
