Congress party will not field its candidate in the upcoming 3-seat Rajya Sabha election for Gujarat. Dr. Manish Doshi, Spokesperson of Gujarat Congress formally conveyed this to media.
He said that the Congress party has no numbers to win any of the three seats and the party doesn’t believe in the politics of manipulative tactics. Congress has 17 legislators in the State assembly while requiring number of legislators to make even one Rajya Sabha candidate getting elected is 46.
The BJP had won a record 156 seats in Assembly polls held late last year, while the Congress saw its worst performance since the state was formed by managing to get just 17 seats.
The Election Commission of India last month announced that elections to three Rajya Sabha seats in Gujarat would be held on July 24.
