GANDHINAGAR: Three days before the June 19

Rajya Sabha

elections for four seats, Gujarat Congress on Tuesday shifted its MLAs to a five-star hotel in Ahmedabad from three resorts – one in Rajasthan and two in Gujarat’s

Anand

and Rajkot. All 65 Congress MLAs will stay put in the hotel until the elections.
Gujarat Congress president

Amit Chavda

said: “All our MLAs will reach Ahmedabad by Tuesday night and stay in a hotel there. The MLAs will have workshops and training on various aspects of the Rajya Sabha elections from Wednesday. A mock poll will also be conducted for the MLAs before the June 19 elections.”
A total of eight Congress MLAs have resigned since March, bringing down the party’s

strength

in the 182-member

Gujarat Assembly

to 65. The effective strength of the house is now 172 due to the Congress resignations and two vacancies caused by court cases.
