Amit Shah Going to Be the Heir of Modi?

On Thursday, Balwantsinh Rajput, Chief Whip of Congress, Tejshree Patel and P.I.Patel resigned as Congress MLAs and joined BJP.

Three had quit yesterday, promptly joining the BJP and sources said more resignations are expected in what is seen as revenge designed by veteran politician Shankarsinh Vaghela, who exited the Congress last week.

The Gujarat unit of the Congress suffered yet another blow today when another party MLA resigned from the Assembly today, taking the total number of legislators to have quit to six.

DNA reported that the Congress's ordeal will endure since it is nearly certain to lose 11 more of its MLAs.

Congress leaders are keeping their fingers crossed over Patel's victory as MLAs of Janata Dal (United) may, in the changed situations, not go his way.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said at a press conference here that the Election Commission (EC) should register a criminal case against the saffron party.

Besides Raolji, Patel, Chaudhary and Chauhan are also believed to be close to Vaghela, who quit as Leader of Opposition on July 21, alleging that there was an intra-party conspiracy to oust him from the Congress.

Out of the 9 retiring members, four are from the Trinamool Congress, two from the Congress, two from the BJP and one from the CPI-M. The Congress has steadily lost ground in the state in the last two decades of BJP rule, and Amit Shah has announced plans to increase the gap with a target of winning 150 of Gujarat's 182 assembly seats this year.

Earlier, Sharma had raised the issue through a point of order saying the Constitution was being violated by the ruling BJP which was using the police to "kidnap" MLAs.

The Congress nominee can sail through if he musters the support of 47 MLAs and the party is able to guard against further desertions from its legislative arm. Rajya Sabha is not the place to protest. Similar attempts to buy the loyalty of Congress MLAs Shri Mangalbhai Gavit and Shri Ishwarbhai Patel were made by misuse of muscle power, money power and state power.

The party has not identified the MLAs who cross-voted.

Ahmed Patel, political secretary of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, on Wednesday filed his nomination papers from Gujarat for the Rajya Sabha polls.
