While Congress MLA Balvantsinh Rajput has resigned from all posts in the party, Dr Tejashree Patel who is an MLA from Viramgam assembly constituency and one of the vocal leaders of the party in the Gujarat Assembly has quit the legislative assembly as well as the Congress party.

Congress leaders are keeping their fingers crossed over Patel's victory as MLAs of Janata Dal (United) may, in the changed situations, not go his way.
