Since the time Shankarsinh Vaghela quit Congress, many Gujarat Congress MLAs who are believed to be close to him have resigned from party. Adding to the list, Gujarat Congress MLA Ramsinh Parmar submitted his resignation to Assembly Speaker on Friday.

Earlier in the day, two of Gujarat Congress MLAs - Mansingh Chouhan and Chhanabhai Chaudhary had 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.

According to sources, Balwantsinh Rajput who is Chief whip of the Congress in the Assembly, is likely to be fielded by the BJP against veteran Congress leader Ahmed Patel, who is a lone Congress candidate for the Upper House.
