On Election Commission’s decision to reject the votes of two dissident MLAs of Congress in Rajya Sabha Polls, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said that in the coming days BJP will fight a legal battle and will appeal in the court.

In coming days we will fight a legal battle and will get justice, said Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani. 

The EC’s decision to cancel the votes of two Congress MLAs brought down the requirement for an outright victory for a candidate to 44 from 45. Ahmed Patel secured 44, but would have won with even lesser number of votes given the fact that Rajput could clinch only 38.

Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said BJP would legally challenge the EC’s decision rejecting the votes of two Congress MLAs who had backed his party.
