In Gujarat, The Congress Was Adamant On Disqualifying The BJP’s Two Votes

After the completion of voting in Gujarat, the Congress was adamant on disqualifying the votes of Education Minister Bhupendra Singh Chudasama and Kesari Singh Solanki. The Congress said that the High Court had disqualified Bhupendra Singh, but his case is pending in the Supreme Court because of the BJP’s appeal. However, the BJP said that the Supreme Court had stayed the decision of the Gujarat High Court. Therefore their vote is justified.

The Commission Said – Congress Had To Raise Objections At The Time Of Voting

Congress had another objection regarding Kesri Singh. He gave a certificate of being medically unfit, but the Congress says that his license is fake. However, the Election Commission turned down the objections of Congress. The Commission said – you had to raise objections during voting, not during counting.
