At least two legislators from Janata Dal (Secular), Srinivas Gowda and Srinivas Gubbi, voted for the Congress in the Rajya Sabha polls being held for four seats in Karnataka on Friday. The cross-voting is significant as one of the seats is seeing a heated contest between the main opposition parties - Congress and JD(S) - both of which have vowed to defeat the BJP.
Srinivas Gowda was asked whom he voted for as he was leaving the assembly complex. "I voted Congress," he said. Asked why, he responded, "Because I love it."
