Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court has rejected the plea by Congress leader Digvijaya Singh seeking directions to the police to allow him to meet rebel Madhya Pradesh Congress MLAs who are lodged in Bengaluru, ANI reports.

The Supreme Court earlier on Wednesday, 18 March, rejected the plea by rebel MLAs to appear before it, saying it would not be appropriate, and also said no to sending the Registrar General to meet them or have a video chat with them.

The matter has been adjourned for the day and posted for further consideration on Thursday, when it will be taken up at 10.30 am.

With the Kamal Nath-led government in Madhya Pradesh teetering on the edge, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh was placed under preventive arrest in the early hours of Wednesday when he went to meet the MLAs lodged in a Bengaluru hotel.
