    The Congress while alleging poaching by the BJP carted around 43 MLAs to the resort near Bengaluru. Their hospitality in charge, D K Shivakumar was raided three days back by the Income Tax department.

    The MLAs are expected to reach Gujarat today. The Congress is trying to keep its flock together to ensure that Patel wins the elections. The Congress came under severe criticism as the MLAs were holed up in the resort when the state was facing floods.

    The Congress had also moved the Supreme Court challenging an Election Commission of India notification which had introduced the NOTA option for the RS polls. The SC however rejected the petition.
