It would be "good for the party when Amit Shah wins Rajya Sabha election", he said in an interview to the Zee Group, a statement said.
Congress had moved all its MLAs to Bengaluru on July 29 alleging horse-trading by Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) in a desperate attempt to win the Rajya Sabha election.
In addition to three seats in Gujarat, six seats are at stake in West Bengal.
Patel suffered a blow when former Congress stalwart Shankersinh Vaghela, after casting his vote, told reporters he was against him.
Congress needs 45 votes for its tallest leader Ahmed Patel, who is seeking his fifth term in Rajya Sabha.
Ahmed Patel: "Numbers are in our favour; result should be good". From the Congress point of view, fear of cross-voting looms large. Notably, the NCP and the JD (U) MLAs had accompanied Patel when he filed his nomination.
Dharmendra Jadeja of the INC said that the Congress hasn't been listening to them for a year. "I haven't voted for Ahmed Patel", he declared. "I want to stay in politics but not in Congress".
Earlier on 6 August, NCP leader Praful Patel gave jitters to Congress after he announced that his party had not taken a decision on whom to support in the ensuing elections. "You will know everything in the evening". The only thing Vaghela said was that he was still a friend of Ahmed Patel. "This poll is not at all about anyone's prestige". "This time BJP has agreed to listen to my demands and I am confident that Patels would get justice from the party". "It is the BJP members who have resorted to cross-voting and the talk of cross-voting of one legislator among 44 MLAs is nothing but a rumour", Himmatsinh Patel, Congress leader in the state said.
Adding to the suspense, rebel Congress leader Shankarsinh Vaghela sounded ambiguous, keeping Congress and BJP guessing with which side the crafty veteran would ink the deal at the last moment. BJP has fielded 3 candidates for total 3 seats going to vacate. Rajput till recently was Congress' chief whip in the House.
There are three Rajya Sabha vacancies from Gujarat but there are four candidates in the fray - three from the BJP and one from the Congress. BJP President Amit Shah, one of the four contestants for the three vacant seats will stand against Ahmed Patel from Congress.
The MLAs were whisked away from the airport here and have been kept together at one Nijanand resort on the outskirts of Anand town. Vaghela went on to say that Patel would not even secure 40 votes, five short of the magic figure of 45 to win the polls.
