Even before the Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat, the Congress seems to be in trouble. Even before the elections to 5 Rajya Sabha seats in Gujarat, BJP MLA from Morbi seat Brijesh Merja has made it difficult for the Congress to resign from his post today.
Assembly Speaker Rajendra Trivedi has informed about the resignation of MLA Brijesh Merja. Earlier on Thursday, two Congress MLAs resigned. Eight Congress MLAs have resigned since March.
The Congress has fielded two candidates, Shakti Singh Gohil and Bharat Singh Solanki, for the Rajya Sabha elections in Gujarat. Now after the resignation of eight MLAs, Congress has become difficult in these elections.
At present, BJP has 103 seats out of the 182 assembly seats in Gujarat. Whereas now the Congress has only 65 MLAs. While ten seats are still vacant.
