After nine days of resort-hopping, the lawmakers of the Congress and the Janata Dal Secular will go home today after the test of strength of the HD Kumaraswamy government. The lawmakers have been on the move since the results of the assembly elections were announced last Tuesday to prevent a recurrence of what came to be known as Operation Lotus – poaching by the BJP after the 2008 assembly elections.
Over the last nine days, the lawmakers have changed hotels twice. Their current life, though nomadic, is replete with five-star comfort.
The lawmakers of the Congress are currently lodged at Hilton Embassy Golflinks at Domlur. The JD(S) lawmakers are staying at Prestige Golfshire Resort off Devanahalli on the outskirts of Bengaluru city.
