In the audio, which has gone viral now, one person is heard asking a person claimed to Ramesh Jarakilholi whether he would resign as an MLA. The second person says it is confirmed and will resign in a week. He further added that he will not reveal the number of other disgruntled MLAs.

Meanwhile, senior Congress leader and seven-time MLA Ramalinga Reddy and his daughter Sowmya Reddy, MLA from Jayanagar are also reportedly unhappy after they failed to make the final list of newly inducted ministers. The father-daughter duo was expecting to be inducted into the cabinet, but both have been overlooked by the HD Kumaraswamy government. While expressing disappointment against their non-inclusion into the cabinet, Ramalinga Reddy said that forces within party scuttled his bid to become a minister in the government.

Soumya Reddy, the MLA from Jayanagar, also expressed her displeasure over her father’s exclusion from the cabinet. Soumya’s name was dropped from the final list of parliamentary secretaries. She had shared on Twitter that her father, a seven-time MLA and four-time minister, deserved a cabinet berth.
