Haryana resort housing Karnataka BJP MLAs turns into fort

The development comes in the wake of allegations that the Janata Dal-United (JD-S)-Congress coalition is trying to poach some of its MLAs.


The five star ITC Grand Bharat resort in Haryana, where over 100 BJP MLAs are housed to guard against their poaching, resembles an impregnable fort with armed security men guarding the entire compound in the scenic background of the Aravali Hills.

Sources in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said the MLAs started their day with their routine activities and later enjoyed breakfast with former Chief Minister B.S.
Yeddyyurappa. Later some of them tried their hand at cricket within the premises.

The development comes in the wake of allegations that the Janata Dal-United (JD-S)-Congress coalition is trying to poach some of its MLAs.

The resort housing the Karnataka BJP MLAs has become the power 
centre amid allegations and counter-allegations of poaching. Since the arrival of the BJP MLAs on Monday night, over 100 security guards are keeping a watchful eye on the visitors.

Located amid the Aravali Hills in Manesar, about 55 km west from the national capital, the resort is also out of bounds for the media persons who are not being allowed inside.

A party source told IANS that the media is being kept away as the movement of all persons is being monitored through closed-circuit televisions.

He said that there are several security check-points at the 
resort, so that no unidentified visitor gets to meet the legislators.

The source said that over 90 MLAs came to this resort on Monday evening, and around six MLAs joined them later.

He also said that BJP leader Sadanand Gowda is flying to Delhi to meet the party MLAs in the resort.

Earlier in the day, R. Shankar, a legislator from Ranebennur Assembly segment in Haveri district belonging to the regional Karnataka Pragnavtha Janata Party, and H. Nagesh, an Independent from Mulbagal constituency in Kolar district, withdrew their support to the coalition government.
