Gandhinagar, Aug 8: Counting for the Gujarat Rajya Sabha elections halted on Tuesday evening after Congress demanded cancellation of votes of two of its legislators who cross-voted and displayed their ballot paper to the BJP’s polling agent.
Two rebel Congress MLAs, Raghavji Patel and Bholabhai Gohil, displayed their ballot paper before the BJP agent as well as the Congress counterpart, which was challenged by senior Congress leaders.
Later, Shaktisinh Gohil and Arjun Modhwadia of the Congress and state BJP president Jitu Vaghani viewed the videography of the polling. A report was sent to the Election Commission in Delhi on the incident.
The Commission’s decision is awaited.
