Not miners, but MLAs running away from them

It wasn’t not too long ago that the BJP circulated tapes of a JDS legislator and minister allegedly being offered a Rs 150 crore bribe by the Reddy brothers in Bellary.

The boot is now on the other foot as JDS legislators wearing helmets stage a dharna at the assembly session in Vidhana Soudha, presumably to protect themselves from the thugs who have turned the hallowed precincts of the house of the people into a wrestling akhada.
