Security outside the Eagleston resort, where Congress MLAs are holed up, has been removed hours after BS Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister of Karnataka on Thursday.
According to the Congress party leaders, 78 MLAs are lodged in the resort located near Bidadi in the outskirts of Bengaluru. The Congress wants to foil BJP's plan to poach MLAs to prove majority on the floor of the house.
Senior leader KH Muniyappa, said, " This is not the system. Irrespective of whose govt it is, it is their duty to provide protection, provide security to the elected representatives."
The Supreme Court has given the Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi 48 hours to produce the two letters written by BS Yeddyurappa to the Governor staking his claim to form a government.
The top law officer has to procure the documents from the Governor and produce them before the court on May 18 at 10.30 a.m.
As the deadline is approaching BJP is desperate to get the required number to prove the majority. The BHP still needs the support of seven MLAs to form the government.
