Congress MLAs to leave Bengaluru resort on Monday, to shift to another in Gujarat

The first batch of Congress MLAs is scheduled to leave from Bengaluru at around 4 AM. 10 MLAs are expected to board the flight at around 4 AM on Monday while the rest will travel to Ahmedabad at noon. Once they reach Ahmedabad, the MLAs will be taken to Neejanand Resort on Anand-Borsad Road in Gujarat.

D K Shivakumar and D K Suresh along with some state Congress leaders will escort the Gujarat MLAs to the Bengaluru international airport on Monday morning. The MLAs had met Karnataka governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala on Saturday to express their anguish over the raids at D K Shivakumar's residence.

MLAs from Gujarat, 44 in number, were flown down to Bengaluru in three batches by the party senior leadership on last Saturday. After spending more than a week in a Bengaluru resort, the legislators are homebound. The Congress was forced to shift its MLAs out from Gujarat following a spate of resignations in the backdrop of Rajya Sabha elections. Ahmed Patel's election to the Rajya Sabha is of utmost importance to the Congress that has lost its 'largest party' tag to the BJP by one seat recently.
