With only a few minutes left for the Congress Party's meeting at the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee to take place, sources have told that the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) is unable to contact four MLA-elects from the Hyderabad-Karnataka region. 

The MLAs in concern are Anand Singh, Kudligi Nagendra, MY Patil and Rajshekhar Patil. 

As per latest reports, the Congress party is desperately trying to contact these MLAs, a whip was issued on Tuesday by the President of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee, G Parameshwara, to all MLAs for a compulsory attendance in the meeting.

The Indian National Congress had called for a meeting at the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee to discuss the further course of action.

Moments after reaching the KPCC office, Siddaramaiah denied all any such reports and said:

"All the Congress MLAs are intact. Nobody is missing. We are confident of forming the government".

Hitting out at the Bharatiya Janata Party, Congress' DK Shivakumar who had on Tuesday pitched his name for the post of deputy CM said:

"Yes, definitely there is a plan. We have to safeguard our MLAs, We will let you know what is the plan".

"They (BJP) are poaching our MLAs, we know that. Every day there is a lot of pressure. But it not so easy because two parties have the necessary number. People are watching this," he further said.

The BJP emerged as the single-largest party in the Karnataka Assembly elections winning 104 seats on Tuesday, even as the next two parties, the Congress and JD(S), crafted a post-poll alliance and staked their claim to form a government in the state touting a 118-seat majority in the 222-seat election.

Congress' Ghulam Nabi Azad, however, slammed such claims and that the single largest Party does not have the number.

"The single largest party doesn't have the numbers. BJP has 104, we (Congress & JDS) have 117. Governor cannot take sides. Can a person who is there to save constitution, destroy it too? The gov has to cut all its previous associations, be it BJP or RSS".

The key question, i.e. who will form the government in Karnataka, still remains unanswered.
