As few hours are left to go for the floor test in Karnataka, speculations are on the rise of the two Congress MLAs Anand Singh and Pratapgowda Patil who have gone incommunicado.
According to sources, BJP MLA G Somashekhar Reddy is with the two 'missing' Congress MLAs Anand Singh and Pratap Gowda.
Some TV reports had claimed earlier that the two time MLA from Vijayanagara (Ballari), Anand Singh would resign from the Congress after taking oath as the member of the Karnataka assembly.
The other Congress MLA Pratapgowda Patil had also slipped out of the Congress party.
According to some reports, the MLA had fleed the Congress bus to Eagleton resort and boarded a flight out of the HAL airport.
Patil had won previously from the BJP ticket in 2008 and was asking for a ticket from the party in the recent elections too. However, the BJP had denied his demands.
He won the recent polls on Congress ticket from the Masik constituency in Raichur.
Some media reports have also indicated that the BJP was trying to contact the discontent MLAs from Congress and JDS in order to woo their support and attain the required majority.
