Gandhinagar: Former Congress veteran Shankarsinh Vaghela on Thursday criticised the party for conspiracy to win one seat in the Rajya Sabha elections.
According to information, Vaghela while addressing the media persons claimed that it was party’s plan to get the votes of two MLAs disqualified in order to secure the seat for Ahmed Patel in the RS.
“Election Commission had no role in this, they should not have interfered in the polls, as the returning officer had the right to decide between the parties”, he added.
Adding to it he said to the reporters that “Ashok Gehlot said I was acting under CBI pressure, I told him I won’t vote for Ahmed Patel till he apologises for this comment.” Gehlot had said Vaghela resigned under pressure from the government after the ED and the CBI had searched his premises.
In the end, Vaghela congratulated Ahmed Patel for his victory in the Upper house.”I congratulate Ahmed Bhai, acche sober aadmi hain, inka hisaab Dilli wale karna chahte the lekin ye jeet gaye”, said Vaghela in a sarcastic manner.
