Several Congress workers gathered outside Nitesh Wimbledon Park apartment complex in Seshadripuram, after learning that two MLAs R Shankar and H Nagesh were staying in one of the apartments.

Speaking to reporters outside the complex, MLC Ivan D'Souza said that they had come to the venue to wait for the MLAs to come out. "Both of them are ministers in the State cabinet and we have issued a whip for them to come and vote for the coalition. We are waiting for them to come out so that they can participate in the trust vote," he said.
