Hit by three resignations in its legislative rank in a week, the Congress in Gujarat shifted all its MLAs to a resort in Abu Road in party-ruled Rajasthan, alleging the ruling BJP was indulging in horse-trading ahead of the June 19 polls for four Rajya Sabha seats.
All party MLAs are being shifted to a single resort at Abu Road in Sirohi district of Rajasthan, not farfrom the Gujarat border in Banaskantha district.
