Gujarat Legislators To Start Returning Tomorrow From Bengaluru Hideaway

Gujarat Legislators To Start Returning Tomorrow From Bengaluru Hideaway

His party at present has support of 44 MLAs, who have returned to the state after camping in a resort near Bengaluru for over a week.

While those that have jumped ship or separated from the Congress like Vaghela, might not say it, the working of Shah, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP's Chanakya, in such developments is most probably the worst kept secret in Gujarat right now.

Party leaders said that as part of the BJP's 2019 general elections' preparations, it is trying to reach out to communities and is also looking to poach leaders from other parties.

The elections seem to be a prestige battle for Congress and will also decide the political future of Patel, who also serves as a political adviser to Congress president Sonia Gandhi. The third BJP candidate, Rajput, will get 34 BJP votes and is banking on cross-voting from the Congress ranks for the remaining 10 votes. Shah has already set a target of winning 150 seats in the 186-member assembly, while the Congress has witnessed desertions right from the top state leadership. "The BJP not only wants a Congress free India, but they want to remove SC and ST reservations and wants a minority free House", Patel said in Ahmedabad. Earlier today, senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel after meeting Congress MLAs lodged in Anand resort had confirmed support of NCP. Thus reducing the Congress tally to 51 in the 182 seat Gujarat Assembly.

The MLAs were moved to a private resort near Bengaluru on July 29 following the resignation of six Congress legislators. The party will take the final call on Tuesday, said NCP leader Praful Patel.

Vaghela said the Congress will "suffer" because of moving MLAs to Bengaluru when the state was reeling under flood.

The Party is going whole hog to recapture power in the statewith Party State President B S Yeddyurappa working towards the partyclaiming atleast 150 of the 224 seats.

Mr Patel, political secretary to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, said that apart from MLAs of his own party, he has the support of the NCP and JD (U).

While Shah and Irani are expected to win with comfortable ease, Congress defector Balwantsinh Rajput has been pipped against Patel by the saffron party which has cast aspersions on senior Congress leader's return to the Rajya Sabha.

Former Congress leader Shankersinh Vaghela on Monday shunned the option of NOTA in the Rajya Sabha polls scheduled for tomorrow referring it as "nonsense". "I am confident that at no stage none of the BJP candidates will need a preference vote to win".
