Senior Gujarat Congress leader and Leader of the Opposition (LoP) Shaktisinh Gohil on Sunday dismissed media reports, saying that it was false information all 44 MLAs are going to meet party president Sonia Gandhi in the national capital. He said all party MLAs will return to Gujarat.
Sources said that the Congress legislators will leave from Bengaluru on Monday. The first batch of 10 MLAs will leave by early morning 4 am and rest will leave by 12 noon. They will be heading to Anand Nijanand Resort, sources added.
On Friday, Gujarat Congress legislators had ventured out for the first time from a private resort on the city outskirts where they have been camping for about a week and had met the Karnataka Governor, besides visiting the state secretariat.
The Congress had sent its 44 legislators here on July 29 to fend off what it alleged were "poaching" attempts by the BJP ahead of the?August eight Rajya Sabha polls in Gujarat in which Ahmed Patel, political secretary to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, was contesting.
The MLAs were driven from the luxurious resort to Raj Bhavan in a state transport bus, where they had met Governor Vajubhai Vala.
