As per the reports, three legislators, recognized to be close to Vaghela, afterward joined the Bhartiya Janta Party in existence of the party’s National President Amit Shah.
Rumors revealed that several other Congresss MLAs visited Vaghela’s home, Rajkot and other places for a meeting as they could also left the Assembly and the party soon ahead of the Rajya Sabha elections. Vaghela is expected to like the assistance of 26 of 57 Congress MLAs.
Congress Party MLAs including Balwantsinh Rajput, Tejshriben Patel and PI Patel proposed their resignations on Thursday from the Vidhan Sabha to Speaker Ramanlal Vora. Afterward, they sent their acquiescence’s from the party to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
The party immediately appointed Ahmedabad MLA Shailesh Parmar as Chief Whip after the resignation of Rajput. On the other hand, Congress leaders involving Ahmed Patel, Political Secretary to Sonia Gandhi talked about a policy in a hotel to decrease the damage, sources stated.
Vaghela had cautioned to resign on Wednesday as an legislator ahead of the August 8 Rajya Sabha elections whetherAICC General Secretary in-charge Ashok Gehlot botched to take out stated that Bapu resigned the Congress to protect himself from corruption allegations dating back to his term as a Union Minister in the UPA-I regime.
These renunciations additionally come a day after Ahmed Patel asserted Vaghela’s help for his fifth Rajya Sabha assignment. Hypothesis is overflowing that even Rajput could record his assignment papers for the Upper House, planning to get surplus BJP votes and a cut off the Congress votes implied for Patel.
Amit Shah and Union Minister Smriti Irani will document their papers on Friday as BJP chosen people.
With the three abdications, the viable quality of the Congress Legislature Party has contracted from 57 to 54. Despite the fact that Vaghela had stopped the Congress and reported his acquiescence as a MLA after the Rajya Sabha decisions, he “actually” keeps on being a Congress MLA.
This has left the Congress stressed no end, as it fears Vaghela’s capacity to impact other gathering administrators to vote against Ahmed Patel in the Rajya Sabha surveys.
Patel needs no less than 47 votes, including two from NCP MLAs and one from the JD(U). Be that as it may, with Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) joining the NDA temporary fad, the vote of its sole MLA, Chhotu Vasava, stays questionable.
The Congress’ worries are genuine. Upwards of 11 of its 57 MLAs cross-voted in the current presidential decisions, picking the NDA’s Ram Nath Kovind over UPA chosen one Meira Kumar, who got just 46 Congress votes.
