Congress leader Anand Sharma also levelled the same allegation against the BJP.
One more leader, CK Raolji, who is believed to be the closest to rebel leader Shankersinh Vaghela, was on his way to resign but turned back midway "for final negotiations".
The only Muslim parliamentarian from Gujarat, Ahmed is considered a troubleshooter for Congress, and ensured that he remains a troublemaker for BJP.
Congress MP D K Suresh claimed the MLAs, who flew in earlier in the day, came to visit some temples.
On Thursday Balwantsinh Rajput (who was also the chief whip), Tejashreeben Patel and Prahlad Patel had resigned. Pointing out that as of today, six of the Congress MLAs have resigned from the assembly, bringing down the strength of the state assembly to 176, the source said, "Divided by three, it means, Ahmed Patel needs 45 votes".
He added that in the upcoming state elections, he will not fight from Congress. In such circumstances, it is not possible for me to work for Congress party, due to this I resign from all the posts of Congress.
When Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien told Opposition that they should approach Election Commission, Azad said the issue has to be raised in the Upper House as it relates to polls to the Rajya Sabha. As a last ditch effort to keep its flock together, the Congress has flown 44 of its MLAs to the Egleton Resort near Ramanagara in Bengaluru, hoping that they would stay with the party at least till they cast their votes for Ahmed Patel in the RS polls.
It is to be said that BJP has nominated party president Amit Shah from Gujarat and Union Minister Smriti Irani as Rajya Sabha candidate. People like an Indian Police Service officer who was behind bars for 8-9 years in fake encounter case are being used to kidnap our MLAs, offer money or threaten our legislators.
The Gujarat Congress on Friday suffered another blow as three more MLAs quit the party. The leaders complained that money and muscle power is in the full display in the state by the ruling BJP. "My resignation has nothing to do with the Rajya Sabha polls". He, however, said that the question of joining BJP does not arise at this point. Currently with the resignation of six MLAs now the number of Congress is 51. Sana Bhai Choudhary gave me his resignation. "I have no remedy for this", he said.
However, more than increasing its tally in Rajya Sabha, the BJP leadership intends to block Ahmed Patel's entry into the parliament - consecutive fifth term (since 1993).
That number is 455, according to Russian Federation , but it is unclear how many Americans are now serving in Russian Federation . A top White House aide said on Thursday that Trump might veto the legislation in order to push for a tougher deal.
The Legislature won't convene until Monday when Democratic Senate President John Cullerton says he'll send Republican Gov. Democrats are likely lobbying Republicans to desert Rauner and vote to over-ride his expected veto.
The sanctions were drawn up in part to punish Russian Federation further over the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. We must not forget what is at stake: We want to overcome the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
The chief minister of the vast and politically important Punjab province, Shahbaz Sharif , 65, is not now a member of parliament. The push against Sharif has been spearheaded by cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and his Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf party.
And the Trump administration itself is reserving its right to veto the legislation or pursue a different approach. The White House said it would comment on the sanctions bill when they get it and have a chance to review it.
Corker had earlier objected to including the North Korean sanctions, initially favoring to address that issue in a separate bill. The measure would apply terrorism sanctions to the country's Revolutionary Guards and enforce an arms embargo.
Di Resta, 31, had also been due to deputise for pundit Martin Brundle in the Sky Sports commentary box in Hungary. He said he was feeling better on Saturday morning and was passed fit to take part in final practice.
Kelly was the subject of an article in New Boston Post when he was named secretary of Homeland Security by Kelly Thomas. Trump posted the tweets from Air Force One on his way back from NY , with both Priebus and Scaramucci aboard.
