GURUGRAM: Congress workers on Wednesday protested outside the hotel where about 90 BJP MLAs from Karnataka have been put up amidst political developments back home where the Congress-JD(S) government was jolted by two Independent MLAs withdrawing support to it.

Workers of the local Congress unit led by Pradeep shouted slogans asking the MLAs to go back home and said they would not leave the place until they go back. More than 90 MLAs are said to be housed in the hotel.

The luxury hotel lodged a complaint with the police against the protest saying it was causing inconvenience to its guests.

The protesters finally called off their agitation after the police persuaded them to do so.

The BJP MLAs are holed up in the resort hotel amidst allegations by the Congress that the BJP was involved in attempts to destabilise the Kumaraswamy government, which the saffron party has strongly denied.

Two Independent MLAs R Shankar and H Nagesh have withdrawn support to the Kumaraswamy government but the Chief Minister claimed that his government was safe as it still has a majority. Congress leaders have also made similar claims.

Former chief minister and Karnataka BJP strongman B.S. Yeddyurappa had been having meetings with the MLAs. He has also rejected allegations that his party was attempting to destabilise the government.
