NEW DELHI: Sensing an opportunity in the upcoming Assembly elections in Gujarat, the Congress high command wants its sitting legislators to buckle up or risk losing their renomination. The Congress high command conveyed this message after it felt unhappy over its State legislators’ “feeble protests’’ against alleged corruption, involving Chief Minister Anandiben Patel’s daughter.
Assembly elections in the State are scheduled for the end of next year and as the main opposition party, the Congress, is sensing an opportunity following its success in the local body polls four months ago.
According to a party central leader, the high command has asked the MLAs to take up the Anar Patel issue in a big way. The issue concerns controversial land allotments to entities associated with Anar Patel, daughter of the Chief Minister.
