I will support you. I will arrange a meeting with the national president (Amit Shah) and you can speak to him one-to-one and we can take the next step. We will get you whatever post you want… what ever designation you want,” Reddy allegedly told the Congress MLA.Reddy also told the MLA that those who have listened to him earlier have become rich and got a great post.” You should think of ourselves.”However, the Congress MLA refused to accept the offer saying, “The party has done so much for him and helped me contest the election. I cannot betray them. Although I have the utmost respect for you.”Also readKarnataka drama: What is a pro-tem speaker and why is the Congress worried about KG Bopaiah?
