Election Epicentre: Netas Defect & Allies Ditch Congress

Today is not a good day for Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Defections in Maharashtra and Gujarat followed by BSP supremo Mayawati shutting the doors to any possible alliance. In what is being seen as a major embarrassment for the Congress, Sujay Vikhe Patil, son of the leader of opposition in Maharashtra Radhakrishna Patil, joined the BJP. 4 Congress MLAs in BJP dominated Gujarat have changed teams. As Rahul Gandhi chaired the party's working committee meeting in Ahmedabad saying it must focus on the economy and jobs to counter the BJP.
