Congress out of race for Visavadar

When the scrutiny of nominations was underway at the office of district election officer on Monday afternoon, Patel came with a recall mandate from the party, following which election officials cancelled Harpati's nomination and approved Patel's.

Patel, a tribal leader, was Congress MLA from 1985 to 1990 from Chikhli constituency in Navsari. She was re-elected from Chikhli in the 2002 Assembly elections.

"I am happy that the party has again selected me from Gandevi," Patel told The Indian Express while expressing confidence that she would win.

She will be contesting against former BJP minister Mangu Patel.
