BJP government in Karnataka suffered an embarassment as its MLA D N Jeevaraj quit
as Chief Whip in the assembly in the wake of doubts over his induction into the ministry in a proposed reshuffle of the B S Yeddyurappa cabinet.
Ruling NDA and opposition RJD-LJP combine have issued whips to its MLAs as the presence of BG Uday, a Bangalore-based businessman, has paved the way for a keen contest to five Rajya Sabha seats from Bihar Thursday.
Even as the Women`s Reservation
Bill failed to sail through Rajya Sabha on Monday, the Congress issued
a fresh whip to its members in the Upper House to be present
tomorrow and vote for the legislation.
