BENGALURU: The 44 Congress MLAs, who left for Bengaluru to ensure they don't succumb to police and political pressure to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), said on Saturday that there is no pressure and that they are not scared of the saffron party.

The MLAs reached Bengaluru late Friday night.

One of the MLAs said they will be visiting Tirupati.

Yesterday, Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi accused the BJP in Gujarat of horse-trading ahead of the Rajya Sabha elections scheduled for August 8.

Following this, Union Minister and BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad laughed off the accusation and said the Congress has become a sinking ship and is not able to hold their own house together.
