Have the numbers, had to keep Rajasthan MLAs in hotels because of BJP: Congress ahead of RS polls

/


The Congress has expressed confidence that all of the party’s candidates from Rajasthan will win in the Rajya Sabha polls.

The Congress claims it has support of 126 MLAs including its own. It needs the support of 123 MLAs to vote for its three candidates in a bid to ensure their victory.

Ahead of the Rajya Sabha polls in four states, the Congress said the party has the numbers and that the party’s three candidates from Rajasthan would win.

“We had to keep our MLAs in hotels because of the BJP’s conspiracy. If the BJP had not put up a second candidate, we would not have to do Baade Bandi. We have the numbers. All three of our candidates will win,” Rajasthan Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasra said.

Meanwhile, Congress chief whip Mahesh Joshi said, “We have the numbers. We have 126 MLAs with us. The Independents are with us. The Chief Minister is one of our poll observers.”

Ahead of the polls, ministers of the Congress and the BJP were packed into luxurious five-star resorts in Udaipur and Jaipur. While the BJP shifted its party MLAs to a resort in Jamdoli on the outskirts of Jaipur, the Congress kept its party MLAs busy with magic shows and other entertainment.

The Congress claimed it has the support of 126 MLAs, including its own. It needs the support of 123 MLAs to vote for its three candidates in a bid to ensure their victory.

“All three of our candidates will win. The BJP wants to try once again to indulge in horse trading. It does not have the numbers to ensure the victory of Subhash Chandra,” Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot said.
