Adding up to the number of exits, 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.

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.
