New Delhi: 

Twelve Congress legislators today did not attend a crucial meeting of the party legislators to discuss strategies to save the government. Three others skipped the Congress Legislature Party meeting citing health reasons.

The move comes as youth congress workers started protests outside the hotel they are staying in. Meanwhile, Congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar is headed for Mumbai in an attempt to meet the rebels.  Last week, 12 lawmakers had resigned; 11 of them -- 8 of the Congress and three of the JDS -- quit on Saturday.
