New Delhi:

Amid heavy security outside the airport in Ahmedabad, Congress MLAs who were camping at a private resort near Bengaluru arrived in the city on Monday morning.

After their arrival, Congress MLAs were taken to a resort near Ahmedabad.

Earlier during late Sunday night, Congress spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil informed that All the 44 legislators will be flown back to Gujarat early morning. The flight carrying all of them is scheduled to land in Gujarat around 5 am,”

However, Gohil refuted reports that the legislators would be flown to Delhi to meet the Congress president.

The Gujarat Congress had sent 44 of its MLAs in Bengaluru on July 29 to fend off “poaching” attempts by the BJP, ahead of the August 8 Rajya Sabha polls, in which Ahmed Patel, the political secretary to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, is contesting.
