Congress candidate for Visavadar constituency Ratilal Mangroliya on Friday withdrew his petition filed in the Gujarat High Court where he had challenged the Election Commission's decision to reject his nomination.
Magroliya withdrew the plea after the court did not seem to be inclined to entertain the petition with an observation that he had alternate remedy available in preferring an Election Petition.
According to Congress leaders, Mangroliya could not submit the mandate in time because some unknown person snatched away his mandate form while he was going to submit it.
With this, the Visavadar seat is all set to witness a straight contest between BJP candidate Kanubhai Bhalala and Gujarat Parivartan Party chief Keshubhai Patel.
