31 July, 2017, 01:08
Of the 44 GujaratCongress lawmakers staying at Eagleton Golf Resort at Bidadi, about 30km from Bengaluru, at least a dozen were reported to be "restive", complaining they were cut off from their people and constituencies, the party source said. "There are three other colleagues also - we are now 60", he said.
Gohil further said that all the MLAs made a decision to protect democracy and themselves so they have shifted to a state where they feel secured.
"This is the internal problem of the Congress as its leader of opposition Shankarsinh Vaghela, its chief whip Balwantsinh Rajput and spokesperson Tajeshriben Patel have quit as they faced difficulties".
Countering criticism of bringing the legislators to the resort to Bengaluru when Gujarat is reeling under heavy rain and floods, Gohil said the MLAs were brought here after party leaders came to know about BJP's attempt to poach their MLAs using "money and muscle" power.
Talking to mediapersons in Palanpur, Patel refuted Rupani's allegation that leaving Gujarat and moving to Bengaluru shows the "insensitive approach" of the Congress MLAs, at a time when the state is facing flood-like situation.

"He himself left the party, because he knew the real face of congress", Javadekar said. People like an IPS officer who was behind bars for 8-9 years in a fake encounter case are being used to kidnap our MLAs, offer money or threaten our legislators.
The legislator also rubbished reports of mobile phones being taken away from MLAs.
"The BJP did not care about the people affected by the floods, it only wanted to buy Congress MLAs,"Gohil said".
The Congress has re-nominated Patel, political secretary to party chief Sonia Gandhi, to the Upper House of Parliament from Gujarat.
He said BJP is doing horse-trading and we are trying to protect the democracy. The desertions have cast a shadow on the fate of Patel in the coming Rajya Sabha polls.
