Congress state president Dinesh Gundu Rao asserted that the coalition government was stable and has majority.

He warned of action against those trying to destabilise the government.

Hours after Vijayanagara Congress MLA Anand Singh submitted his resignation to Speaker Ramesh Kumar, his party colleague and rebel legislator Ramesh Jarkiholi too sent in his resignation.

On Anand Singh submitting his resignation, Rao said “We dont know for what he had resigned must be some pressure. BJP has been trying to destabilise the government. Their agenda has been that there should not be a stable government.”

He alleged that the Centre had been misusing its authority by letting loose central agencies on opposition leaders.

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa said they were not bothered about the resignations.
