Congress MLAs are frustrated with party's ideology: BJP

Congress MLAs are frustrated with party's ideology: BJP”

Earlier, Balwantsinh Rajput, the party's chief whip in the Assembly, Tejashreeben Patel and Prahlad Patel quit the party yesterday and straightaway joined the ruling BJP. The BJP has 125 MLAs, while Congress's tally has been reduced to 54 MLAs after three of them quit on Thursday.

Those who resigned on Friday are veteran Congress legislator Ramsinh Parmar, MLA from Thasra constituency and chairman of the prestigious Amul Dairy, Chhanabhai Chaudhary, MLA from Vansda constituency, and Mansinh Chauhan from Balasinor. Rajput, who is a close relative to Vaghela, has fielded Sonia Gandhi's political advisor Ahmed Patel in the wake of the re-election in the Upper House of Parliament. A mock session for BJP MLAs ahead of the Rajya Sabha voting is also planned, said a senior BJP leader.

Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad said Gujarat Congress MLA Punabhai Gamit had gone for a cup of tea to another MLA's house when the district superintendent of police abducted him. If he does not, I will resign as MLA before the Rajya Sabha polls and that could weaken Patel's chances."Ahmed Patel had come to meet me last night". According to the numbers, BJP is entitled to two while Congress will get one.

The Congress, which had 57 MLAs in the 182-member Assembly, has accused the BJP of using money, muscle and state power in Gujarat to engineer defections.

They are expected to be in Bengaluru for at least a week with Gujarat Congress unit president Bharatsinh Solanki. "It must be guaranteed that the biennial elections to Rajya Sabha are free and fair and MLAs are released", he said in Rajya Sabha. "So they have chose to go out of the state", said party leader Arjun Modhwadia about moving party legislators to another location.

The Congress has warned its legislators that any cross-voting in the Rajya Sabha elections will invite disqualification for six years from the party. The two leaders - Tejashri Patel and PI Patel - belong to the North Gujarat region, and their joining BJP might just ignite the party's hopes in this region. "Does the Congress want to suggest that it has given important positions to such leaders who could be purchased", Prasad said.

"This morning during the Zero Hour and Question Hour, Leader of the Opposition (Ghulam Nabi Azad) and Anand Sharma had made objectionable statements to defame Gujarat".
