Both Shah and Irani were elected to the Upper House from Gujarat earlier this month. While the two were elected smoothly, the fight for the third Rajya Sabha seat saw some high-voltage drama beginning with Congress herding its MLAs to a Karnataka resort out of fear of poaching. The voting had ended with the Election Commission declaring a Congress legislator’s vote invalid and paving the way for the win of Congress nominee Ahmed Patel.
