According to sources, around three to four legislators are at a private place in the city's Whitefield area.

One of them is said to be an Independent legislator.

In a late-night political drama in Madhya Pradesh, the Congress claimed the BJP took eight MLAs to a hotel in Haryana as part of a conspiracy to topple the state government.

Kamal Nath, however, asserted there was no threat to his government, which came to power in December 2018 by ousting the BJP.
