NEW DELHI: After staging a protest this morning next to Karnataka’s Vidhan Soudha, Congress MLAs returned to the Eagleton Resort at Bidadi where they are holed up, even as horsetrading allegations intensified.

The Congress leaders, who were protesting BJP leader BSY Yeddyurappa’s swearing in as chief minister, were seen on the steps of the state secretariat in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, and included former chief minister Siddaramaiah, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ashok Gehlot, Mallikarjuna Kharge and party’s General Secretary in-charge of Karnataka K C Venugopal.

They were later joined by legislators and leaders from the JD(S).

The Congress party, determined to keep its flock together following the fractured mandate that had led to dramatic developments over the past two days, then ensured its newly-elected MLAs returned to the sprawling resort that is located on the outskirts of Bengaluru. The JD(S)’s legislators are, meanwhile, camping at the Shangri-La hotel, according to reports.

‘Resort politics’ is not a new occurrence in the country and was last witnessed when Gujarat Congress MLAs camped at this same resort as Congress feared defection of MLAs ahead of the Rajya Sabha elections. Before that, during the Mysuru Zila panchayat election, BJP and JD(S) members had camped here, fearing poaching.

The Congress-JD(S) combine is up in arms over Governor’s Vajubhai’s move to invite B S Yeddyurappa for form government as well as his decision to grant 15 days time to the BJP leader for proving majority in the assembly. Siddaramaiah termed the move “unprecedented” and said Yeddyurappa would now have to furnish the list of MLAs supporting him immediately.

Yeddyurappa was administered the oath of office and secrecy by the governor at a low-key ceremony at Raj Bhavan this morning. The swearing followed a night of dramatic developments which saw the Supreme Court in a rare pre-dawn hearing refusing to stay the swearing-in after a post-midnight courtroom battle unfolded over the Congress-JD(S) combine’s legal push to stall government formation.
