They are likely to be parked at the resort till the Rajya Sabha elections are complete. The move to move the MLAs to Bengaluru was taken after the party lost 6 of its MLAs in the past one week. All these MLAs in Gujarat had joined the BJP which gave the party an immense advantage over the Congress in the RS elections.

The party's strength had been reduced to 51 following the resignation of the MLAs. Senior Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia when contacted said that the decision was taken as most of the MLAs were being threatened and coerced by the BJP.
