Karnataka Government Chief Whip Ganesh Hukkeri has issued whip to all ruling party legislators of Congress and JD(S) to attend the Budget session from February 6th to 15th.

Meanwhile, the Ramnagara police have sought permission from the Assembly Speaker Ramesh Kumar to arrest Kampli Congress MLA Ganesh who is facing an FIR for assaulting fellow MLA Anand Singh during their stay in a resort.
