Today Gujarat Congress President Amit Chavda tweeted on his official tweeter handle the following:
In the blatant disregard of constitution, under the immense pressure from BJP, Election Commission has issued notification to hold polls for 2 Rajya Sabha seats in Gujarat separately. This is unprecedented, unconstitutional and blatant attempt by EC to benefit BJP.
If election of both Rajya Sabha seats are held together according to the norm, BJP will win 1 seat and l Congress will win 1 seat. Election of both these seats were held together, RS Seat of Smriti Irani & Amit Shah got vacant together, so what is the need to hold 2 separate polls ?
Today Gujarat Congress has filed petition in SC against this unconstitutional notification by EC, We will fight tooth & nail to uphold constitution & save democracy in Gujarat. We are confident SC will uphold constitution & prevent the murder of our democracy in broad daylight !
