Pa­tel Rap

India Today - - UPFRONT -

So­nia Gandhi’s po­lit­i­cal sec­re­tary Ahmed Pa­tel is a wor­ried man. If the cross-vot­ing by 11 Gu­jarat Congress MLAs in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion is any in­di­ca­tion, Pa­tel may find it dif­fi­cult to get re-elected to the Ra­jya Sabha. Elec­tions to the Up­per House are on Au­gust 8. Pa­tel needs the votes of at least 47 of the state’s 57 party MLAs. Add to that Congress stal­wart Shankersinh Vaghela’s exit and it’s not look­ing good for him.
