October 21, 2010 20:24 IST

Janata Dal-Secular leader and former Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy has alleged that a Bharatiya Janata Party MLA had tried to bribe one of his MLAs to cross over. Kumaraswamy showed a CD in which BJP MLA Suresh Gowda is seen talking to JD-S MLA Srinivas and offering him money to change his party.

Kumaraswamy explained that Gowda had told his MLA that they would pay any amount that he sought.

Kumaraswamy further alleged that Karnataka Home Minister R Ashok too had a conversation on the same issue with the D-S MLA.
