Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot has expressed confidence that the party has the numbers and its both candidates will win the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls in the state. Pilot also asserted that there are no chances of the BJP winning a second seat.
His statement has come a day after the ruling Congress in Rajasthan alleged attempts by the BJP to topple its government in the state. While speaking to media persons , Pilot said “Our party, MLAs from supporting parties and independent MLAs who are supporting us, all are united. We have more than the required number for the majority. Our Rajya Sabha candidates Neeraj Dangi & KC Venugopal will win”.
Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had accused the BJP of horse trading on Wednesday night, alleging that some of the party MLAs were offered Rs 25 crore each.
The party had also taken its MLAs and the Independents backing the state government to a Jaipur resort for a meeting on Wednesday ahead of the elections to three Rajya Sabha seats in the state on June 19.
Pilot said the party had earlier won the assembly bypolls and now its candidates will win the Rajya Sabha polls as well.
