Hungry for theplas, Cong MLAs to get Gujarati chef at Bengaluru resort

For Gujarat Congress MLA Gyasuddin Shaikh, being shipped off on an unexpected retreat to a luxury resort near Bengaluru is going great, save for one little hitch: the food.

Shaikh was among 42 Congress legislators taken to a four-star resort in Karnataka a state Congress rules in an ostensible effort by the party to stop a string of defections last week.

The politics aside, the lawmakers are struggling to adjust with the South Indian cuisine, prompting the state government to arrange for a Gujarati chef. 

All the arrangements are great. But there is bound to be a difference in cuisine, said Shaikh. We Gujaratis have food that is not very spicy. We like roti, dal and kadhi, so there is a change, he told Hindustan Times.

Karnataka power minister DK Shivakumar said a Gujarati chef will be arranged for the legislators soon.
