Gujarat Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki scotches resignation rumours

Gujarat Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki scotches resignation rumours”

Gujarat Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki has resigned from his post. Political circles here were agog with news about Solanki's resignation as soon as he returned to the city after attending the three-day plenary session of the Congress party in Delhi.

After landing in Ahmedabad, Mr Solanki scotched talk of his resignation.

Among names for possible successors is former president Shaktisinh Gohil. The Congress has chosen Amee Yagnik and Naran Rathwa for its two seats in the the upper house from the state. He added, "The party has given me and my family so much. It's only a rumour", he told reporters here.

Congress had improved its tally to 77 in 2017 Gujarat elections from 60 in the 2012 elections under Solanki's leadership.

He earned the displeasure of the high command after eight of the party legislators cross-voted during the Rajya Sabha elections in August a year ago and Congress nominee Ahmed Patel won with a thin margin with the support of then JD (U) legislator Chhotubhai Vasava. After taking over the party's Gujarat chief post, Solanki had asked party leaders in the state to take advance appointments if they wanted to meet him, which created distance between him and party workers.

Last year, the Congress brass was deeply unhappy over the manner in which some legislators cross-voted during the Rajya Sabha elections and the party's nominee Ahmed Patel won by the skin of his teeth, supported by a Janata Dal United lawmaker.
