Ahmadabad, Aug 8: Congress’ Gujarat in-charge Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday confidently said senior party leader Ahmed Patel will win the Rajya Sabha election in Gujarat as he has the required numbers.

“Out of our 44 MLAs we accept that one of them has cross-voted, but one of NCP and one of JD(U) has given us support,” Gehlot stated.

“Ahmed Patel will win as we have the numbers,” he added

Gehlot also said party legislators who cross-voted will be suspended with immediate effect.

Party leaders stated they have attained 45 votes, the magical number required to win the seat, as 43 of their MLAs, one from NCP and one from JD (U) have voted for Ahmed Patel.
