Gujarat HC dismisses Ahmed Patel’s plea to dismiss plea challenging his win in Gujarat RS polls

Gujarat High Court today dismissed Congress leader Ahmed Patel’s plea to dismiss the plea filed by BJP Rajya Sabha candidate Balwantsinh Rajput challenging Patel’s victory in the high octane Rajya Sabha elections held in Gujarat in August 2017.

BJP’s Balwantsinh Rajput had filed a petition challenging August 2017 elections questioning the Election Commission’s decision invalidating two votes by rebel Congress MLAs on the objection raised by Congress. He has also accused Patel of indulging in corrupt practice by taking 44 Congress MLAs to a resort in Bengaluru and keeping them in captivity and spending lavishly on their entertainment.

Patel filed an application in the High Court seeking dismissal of Rajput’s petition at the admission stage claiming it was filed in a faulty manner and with inadequate details, and not following the provisions the Civil Procedure Code.
