Chased by state BJP men, K'taka rebel MLAs take flight to Goa

MUMBAI: A political chase unfolded at Mumbai airport in the wee hours of Thursday morning with BJP workers pursuing a group of rebel MLAs who had landed in the city from Cochin. The Karnataka government is facing serious crises after dissidence in the BJP legislature.

BJP workers 'confined' a group of the party's rebel MLA from the Karnataka government at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport for nine hours on Thursday morning. The MLAs tried to shift to a five-star hotel with the police's help. But pursued by BJP workers, they were forced to remain within the airport premises till they flew out of the city.

At around 2 am, the group landed at the airport from Cochin. "Theirs was a Sharjah-Cochin-Mumbai flight, and therefore it landed at the Sahar terminal," an official said. The MLAs were supposed to move to a hotel, as they were to take a flight out to Goa later in the afternoon. However, when BJP leader Vinod Tavde heard the news, he stormed the airport along with 200 supporters to protest against the MLAs. In what seems to be a last-minute decision, the MLAs decided to move to the domestic terminal and take the first flight out to Goa. "They had not made up their mind as to where to go. The presence of a crowd outside intimidated them and they wanted to shift to the domestic terminal internally," a security official said, "they eventually chose to step out."
