Media on Wednesday could manage to take some photographs of Congress MLAs who were staying inside the ITC Renaissance hotel in Mumbai.
To get a glimpse of the MLAs, dozens of media persons are staying in front of the hotel keeping their vigil. Some unconfirmed reports say there are five Congress MLAs-Nagendra B, Bheema Naik, Kampli Ganesh, Anand Singh and Pratap Gouda are there inside the ITC Renaissance hotel in Powai.
Attempts by mediapersons to sneak in to the luxury hotel could not succeed. After this, Security was beefed up at the five-star resort in suburban Mumbai where two independent MLAs and reportedly four Congress MLAs from Karnataka are staying.
The Congress suspects that some of its MLAs are lodged in the Powai-based hotel, kept secretly by BJP leaders.
Many journalists and Congress workers were seen in the vicinity of the hotel, searching for the "missing" Congress MLAs.
There was a large media presence outside the hotel on Wednesday after the two independent MLAs announced they were withdrawing support to the Congress-JDS coalition government in Karnataka.
