At a time when the Gujarat Congress is leaving no stone unturned to keep its MLAs together before the Rajya Sabha elections scheduled on June 19, the Rajkot Police has registered a case against the resort used by Congress to keep its MLAs. The FIR has been registered for violation of lockdown guidelines issued by the authorities for containing the spread of coronavirus.
Notably, as per government guidelines, hotels, restaurants, and malls were supposed to open from June 8. However, Rajkot’s Neel’s City Resort violated the guidelines and opened the property before June 8. Following this, an FIR has been registered against the owner and manager of the property.
Interestingly, the grand old party has miserably failed in keeping its flock together before the scheduled Rajya Sabha elections for four seats. Eight Congress MLAs have already left the party and resigned from the membership of the Gujarat Legislative Assembly since March, with three of them resigning in the last week.
Congress leader Hardik Patel has accused the BJP of resorting to horse-trading and had said to a news channel that the MLAs who have defected to BJP for their personal benefit should be beaten with slippers for cheating with the electorate which is left without any representation.
