After Congress veteran leader in Gujarat Shankersinh Vaghela tendered his resignation from the party few days ago, Congress suffered another jolt in Gujarat on Friday as two of its MLAs- Mansingh Chouhan and Chhanabhai Chaudhary quit the party.
This development came just a day after Balwantsinh Rajput, Tejashree Patel and Prahlad Patel left the party to join the BJP, ahead of the Rajya Sabha polls.
“I have received resignation of five MLAs so far,” said Gujarat assembly speaker, Ramanlal Vora.
