Gujarat MLAs exodus: Congress has failed itself, says BJP president

Gujarat MLAs exodus: Congress has failed itself, says BJP president”

Seven other MLAs are not part of the group in the resort near Bengaluru but Gohil hoped they would listen to their "inner voice" and not vote against the Congress.

After losing six MLAs, and being nearly on the verge of losing seven more, Congress cloistered its remaining 44 MLAs over the weekend at a five star resort in Bengaluru.

Senior Congress leader Arjun Modhvadia said "What they did in Goa, Manipur and in Bihar, they are trying to do the same in Gujarat". "In the 182-member Gujarat assembly, we have guaranteed support of 57 members, though we need 47 to elect Ahmed Patel", he said, ruling out any possibility of cross-voting. We are like a family and thereis cordial atmosphere here, " he said.

They said that the Congress has been making a baseless allegation against the BJP and further called on Congress president Sonia Gandhi to come up and clarify why their party is crumbling down like a deck of cards.

"We are fighting for democracy, for truth, and our lives are at stake". Sources said that they are in touch with the BJP leadership here and quit the party within the next two days. Shivakumar said no MLA was confined to the resort and no mobile phones were snatched from the MLAs residing in the resort. They thought "we will not take any money, and we may be abducted".

"(BJPpresident) Amit Shah disclosed his assets in his affidavit for the Rajya Sabha polls, but those stories are missing from media websites now.

Reports that some MLAs wanting to go back to Gujarat areunfounded, he said. They are being threatened with jail.

The elections are slated for December, and the BJP might have anticipated some tough competition from the Congress. They had mooted the law not out of an intent to secure legislative propriety, but because 175 had defected from their camp while 139 had defected to Congress.

When questioned about the Congress MLAs staying at a resort in Bengaluru, Gohil said, "If our people wanted to live in luxury in a resort, they could have taken Rs 15 crore offered by the BJP and travelled across the world".
