    If any MLA gets elected contesting from one political party and after election decides to join another party, then he has to give at least half of the money which he receives to the first party .
    If he gets 100 crore rupees for changing his party, he has to give at least 50 crore to the party which gave him ticket to contest.

    Dirty Politics and it is getting dirtier and Merckier than ever. Like few people in this platform have mentioned that " your pet ( Dog ) at home is more faithful to you than these power crazy, money crazy politicians". Imagine they can shift sides like this? Look at us, helpless voters, gazing helpless to the demolishing of our country's Democracy..!!
    Even SC is hands in gloves with BJP ? why 14 days to form a Govt / prove majority? So that each day you buy a MLA/ import a MLA from other side of the fence. Guarantee a huge sum of money & also a fruitful port folio, so you can make more money there as well. This is not even Horse Trading, this is worse than that.
    This is Brutal Murder of our Constitution, under the nose of our Judiciary and with help of people who are supposed to safe guard our Constitutional values. These are willing to compromise anything to get the power of ruling. ! God Save our Country.!!
    Where are we heading to, dear voters? In a day or 02 we will have our Govt formed and there we are. Be ready for the changes in our living patterns. !!

    None of the political parties have rendered selfless service to the country or state. What they have done or spent is just less than 10% from our own tax paid money. The major business contract have been given only to their family members even they are not in the similar industry.
    Politics is not a morality play but a necked pursue of power which we see in Karnataka today.

    Our Air force/Army and Navy has to take over the country for another 10 years and save us from the internal political terrorism as they save us from external enemies. After the army regime one should shiver to enter politics who thinks for his own benefit and growth in politics.

    My only worry is BSY now will give free hand to his associate brothers to loot our soil and other natural resources to compensate the money what they spent for the election campaign. God save our soil and natural resources.

    Here you are trying to grab power by bring congress and JDS together.

    Individual MLAs should have the freedom to decide whether to support or not this move.

    This resort business is murder of freedom.

    If congress alone wanted to rule ,then they could compel their MLAs to vote for it ,since they fought elections on their symbol not long ago.
