Karnataka crisis: Case of the four missing MLAs
BENGALURU: For over a month now, the four assembly constituencies of Athani, Gokak, Chincholi and Bellari (Rural) have been in a “vacuum”, what with their public representatives “missing in action” while pursuing political and personal gain. Development work has come to a standstill and there is no redressal system in these segments.

A cross-section of voters in these constituencies told TOI they felt betrayed by the actions of their representatives, who were voted on Congress tickets. Reports suggest the four plan to quit and join the BJP and the moot question is whether the quartet will show up for the legislature session commencing on February 6.
