Four Gujarat Congress MLAs resign from assembly ahead of Rajya Sabha polls – Times of India, The Times of India

AHMEDABAD: Four Congress MLAs in Gujarat have tendered their resignation to assembly speaker Rajendra Trivedi ahead of the election to the four Rajya Sabha seats in the state to be held on March 73.
The four Congress legislators tendered their resignation on Saturday, which Trivedi has accepted.
Trivedi told this to PTI on Sunday.
He said he will announce the names of the legislators in the Legislative Assembly on Monday.
“Four Congress MLAs tendered their resignation to me on Saturday, and I will announce their names in the Assembly tomorrow,” he said.
With this, the strength of the Congress party in the 728 – member Gujarat Assembly has come down to 73 from 182.
The Congress had on Saturday shifted its 26 MLAs to Jaipur fearing horse-trading by the ruling BJP ahead of the Rajya Sabha polls.
The BJP has fielded Abhay Bhardwaj, Ramila Bara and Narhari Amin for the election.
Given its number in the Assembly, the ruling party can only win two seats unless it manages cross-voting from the opposition camp or ensure defection of Congress MLAs to win the third seat.
The Congress has fielded senior leaders Shaktisinh Gohil and Bharatsinh Solanki.
