Amidst suspense over the chief ministerial pick, a high-profile drama unfolded at a resort on Sikar Road where Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs are being kept, sources said. These MLAs had made a plan to go to Behror in the night itself.

According to sources, when it was decided that the MLAs would go to Behror, a new legislator expressed his shock and threatened to disclose the plan to party top leaders. Following this, a commotion unfolded. As soon as the news of this incident broke, some leaders of the state were immediately sent to that resort. However, later the matter was resolved through talks and after that at 4 in the morning, those MLAs were evacuated from there. It is being told that all this has happened at the behest of some big leader of the state.  

Father of Kishanganj MLA Lalit Meena said, "There were 6 MLAs - 3 from Jhalawar and 2 from Baran and myself. We were being taken somewhere else for a meeting which we informed the top leaders. We do not want to deviate from our party line. We have narrated the entire episode to our senior leader Arun Singh."
