New Delhi : The contest for one Rajya Sabha seat from Gujarat has turned into a most high-profile electoral battle in recent months. In the end, political secretary to Sonia Gandhi - Ahmed Patel emerged victorious. Some of the best political-legal brains in the country were lined up by both Congress and BJP to claim and counter claim their contests. There were a lot of twists in the tale as Karamshi Patel, MLA of Congress voted against his party. Counting was delayed for seven hours after Congress went to the Election Commission demanding the cancellation of votes of its two MLAs for showing ballots to BJP chief Amit Shah while BJP pushed for immediate counting.
