Ahmedabad: Owing to lockdown violation, Gujarat Police registered an FIR against the resort where Congress on Sunday had shifted its MLAs to a resort in Rajkot, after three Congress MLAs resignation.
Gujarat Police registered an FIR against the owner and manager of Neelcity Resort in Rajkot under Indian Penal Code Section 188 (disobedience to order duty promulgated by public servant) for opening the resort for Congress MLAs, in alleged violation of the lockdown notification which does not allow hotels and restaurants to open till Monday.
As per central and state government guidelines, hotels and restaurants can start operations from June 8, while Congress MLAs from Saurashtra region were lodged in the Rajkot resort on Saturday.
After the resignations of three MLAs, the Congress, whose strength has been reduced to 65 in the 182-member House, had earlier shifted its legislators to three resorts in Rajkot, Ambaji in Banaskantha district and Anand in Gujarat, ahead of Rajya Sabha polls.
The Congress seems to be in a futile situation to win two Rajya Sabha seats with the reduced strength of 65.
