Congress Ahmed Patel Wins Rajya Sabha Seat in Gujarat

Gujarat - Rajya Sabha / Upper House seat war between BJP and Congress

If the ballot is seen by a person other than the authorized person then it is liable to be rejected.
Last year BJP also enjoyed the benefit of the above law.

Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel was re-elected to the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday
To defeat Ahmed Patel BJP tried every trick which is available to political parties.

BJP president Amit Shah and Union minister Smriti Irani won the two other seats vacant in the state.

For more than six hours vote counting was put on hold after the Congress moved the election panel.
Congress leaders Randeep Singh Surjewala and RPN Singh went to the poll panel and gave a video to prove the party’s allegation that lawmakers Bholabhai Gohil and Raghavjibhai Patel displayed their ballots and, hence, the two votes should be cancelled.
After this the Election Commission disqualified the ballots of two of its rebel lawmakers.

The election was projected as a battle between Congress Party and BJP.
In last 3 years’ majority times Congress Party failed in this game of politics but this time Congress party played well and won the game. This win will surely increase the moral of Congress Party.

Ahmed Patel needed 45 votes at the time of polling. But it went down after the poll panel declared the votes of the two rebels invalid for allegedly showing their ballot papers to BJP president Shah and Union minister Smriti Irani.

“This is not just my victory. It is a defeat of the most blatant use of money power, muscle power and abuse of state machinery,” Patel tweeted at 1.53am on Wednesday.
