A day after 12 MLAs of the ruling JD(S)-Congress alliance submitted their resignation letters, state chief minister HD Kumaraswamy will be flying to Bengaluru by a special flight from Delhi.

Shivakumar expressed confidence that MLAs of both the parties, who have resigned, will take back the resignation.
