Rajya Sabha poll tomorrow, Gujarat Congress MLAs return to state

Ahmedabad, Aug 7:-- Just a day prior to the Rajya Sabha poll in the state, 44 Gujarat Congress MLAs who were flown to Bengaluru fearing possible defections to the BJP, have returned to Gujarat.


The MLAs were kept at a resort in the capital of Karnataka.


The Congress MLAs landed in Ahmedabad on Monday morning.


However, the lawmakers were taken to another resort some kms away from the city, media reports said.




After the resignation of  former Gujarat chief minister and veteran congress leader Shankarsinh Vaghela, and with three party members joining the BJP, the Congress flew 44 of its lawmakers to Bengaluru late last month.


Congress accused the incumbent Gujarat government of trying to lure 22 Congress lawmakers by offering Rs 15 crores and asking them to cross vote during the polls.


Despite keeping the MLAs in protection, the Congress has got things to worry about as Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Praful Patel said on Monday they are not an ally to any party therefore might not vote for the former.
