Bengaluru:  Even as discontent is still lingering in a section of the Congress over the Coalition Government, the State capital is agog with rumours that the Congress is planning to lure 40 BJP MLAs to form a Government of its own in the State.

The absence of over 40 MLAs in the BJP Legislature Party meeting held at Party Headquarters in Malleswaram yesterday, has lent credence to this rumour.
