Congress leader Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said that Ahmed Patel will win in the Rajya Sabha polls 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,” he claimed.

“Ahmed Patel will win as we have the numbers,” the Congress’ Gujarat in-charge told reporters.

The Congress has 51 MLAs in the House after six legislators resigned following a rebellion by senior party leader Shankarsinh Vaghela.

Out of the 51 MLAs, seven of Vaghela group (including Vaghela) had not gone to Bengaluru but the rest 44 had gone.

Technically, these seven MLAs are still with the Congress, including Vaghela as he has not resigned as MLA.
