Karnataka floor test: Congress hopeful that 'missing' Anand Singh will 'come back'

By Vikas

The mystery surrounding Congress MLA Anand Singh, who was said to have switched sides, seems to be deepening. Initially it was reported that Anand Singh may support the BJP. Then yesterday (May 18) it emerged that the MLA may stay with the Congress.

It now appears that even the Congress is not sure about Anand Singh and are merely hopeful that he may turn up for the crucial trust vote.

Karnataka floor test: Congress hopeful that missing Anand Singh will come back

"Physically he is not with us but he is in contact with our leaders. He has to come to Vidhana Soudha today. He will definitely vote for us. He is with us. He will come back," Congress MLA Ramalinga Reddy told the media today.

Anand Singh, who joined the Congress ahead of the Karnataka election, had made headlines on Thursday (May 17) after it was reported that he was not reachable and efforts on to trace him had gone in vain.

Kumarswamy had Thursday (May 17) accused the BJP of using the Enforcement Directorate (ED) threats to coerce Singh to join the BJP. Kumaraswamy quoted another Congress MLA, who was said to in touch with Singh, as saying that he feared that Centre may let ED loose behind him if he does not join the BJP.
