A Congress MLA from Karnataka, Shivaram Hebbar, disowned the audio clip of Yeddyurappa's son, Vijayendra, calling on his wife and promising cabinet berth and Rs. 15 cr. He said that the audio clip was fake. Congress had released four such audio clips on that day, to show that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was indulging in horse trading. Meanwhile, senior Congress Central leaders, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ashok Ghelot met Congress president, Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi to discuss about the power sharing in Karnataka. However, another MLA, B.C.Patil said that it happened to him.
