Mumbai: Karnataka Congress MLAs who are staying in Mumbai had planned to shift to Goa. However, now the rebels have been shifted to an undisclosed location in Mumbai.

This shift comes after the Youth Congress workers started protests outside Sofitel hotel in Bandra and Congress troubleshooter D K Shivakumar headed for Mumbai.

On Monday, all Janata Dal Secular (JDS) ministers resigned. Later, Chief Minister H D Kumarawamy announced that the Cabinet would be restructured soon.

"I am not anxious about the recent developments," Kumaraswamy said of the crisis that has engulfed his government.

Twenty one Karnataka Congress ministers also resigned voluntarily earlier on Monday said the state Congress Legislature Party leader Siddaramaiah.

Karnataka Minister and Independent MLA Nagesh had also resigned from his post and withdrew support to the H D Kumaraswamy-led coalition government.
