Jaipur, June 7 : Resort tourism, which remained suspended for some time after postponement of the Rajya Sabha polls, has revived in Rajasthan as around 21 more Congress legislators from Gujarat have entered the state and are staying at a private resort, allegedly flouting the lockdown norms.
The MLAs reportedly been shifted to Wild Wings Resort in Sirohi. According to sources, 25 MLAs are staying at the resort. Four MLAs were shifted on Friday, they added.
Patan MLA Kirit Patel said those who wanted to leave the Congress had left. “Now we are all together. No one can lure us,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has questioned the Congress move of shifting MLAs to Rajasthan amid the lockdown.
“The shifting of MLAs to a resort in Rajasthan shows how much pressure the Congress must be under in the present circumstances. Even the party high command didn”t think of lockdown norms and sent MLAs to Rajasthan knowing well about the coronavirus risk for these many people,” said a BJP leader.
Earlier too, Gujarat MLAs had been shifted to a Jaipur resort to prevent poaching when the elections were scheduled for March 26.
The Rajya Sabha elections to 18 seats were postponed due to lockdown. It”s now scheduled on June 19. MLAs will vote for 4 seats in Gujarat and 3 in Rajasthan.
