Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, who was in the US, rushed back in a special chartered flight that arrived in Bengaluru on Sunday evening. He will soon hold a high-level meeting with JDS MLAs and Congress party leaders. The meeting will discuss the current crisis the coalition government is facing.
