Bengaluru : Dramatic scenes unfolded after Congress leader Digvijaya Singh was lifted and dragged outside a five-star hotel by Bengaluru Police. He was sitting outside the hotel in Bengaluru hotel where 22 rebel Madhya Pradesh MLAs have been staying for over a week.

According to a news report he was allegedly stopped by the Bengaluru Police from entering the hotel.

Digvijaya Singh landed in Bengaluru in the morning and went straight to the Ramada Hotel in north Bengaluru's Yelahanka where the 22 rebel MLAs are staying.

"We were expecting them to come back, but when we saw they're being held back, messages came from their families. I personally spoke to five MLAs. They said they're captive and that their phones have been snatched away. There is Police in front of every room. They're being followed 24/7," Digvijaya Singh said. He claimed that a few of them had told him they were in Bengaluru against their will. "BJP's model of democracy: MLAs can't speak to CM, MLAs can't speak to their family members, MLAs can't speak to Speaker, MLAs can't speak to party leaders. MLAs will only speak under controlled circumstances and glare of goons posted by opposition," he tweeted.

"I demand that we must be allowed to meet our MLAs who are in BJP's captivity. I announce my hunger strike till we are allowed to meet our MLAs. We live in democracy, not dictatorship," Digvijaya Singh tweeted.

The resignation of MLAs loyal to former Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, who quit last week and joined the BJP, has endangered the Congress government of Kamal Nath in Madhya Pradesh.
