For the assembly polls in Gujarat, the list of Candidates that were released has given the oldest party of the country a headache. Seemingly disappointed over its leaders not getting sufficient tickets, Hardik Patel, activist of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti, has been remonstrating against the Congress. “The state in which congress is in at present is disheartening, it had never been in such a bad shape ever before,” Chief Minister of Gujarat, Vijay Rupani said.

“We have nothing to do with Hardik Patel (PAAS leader). But, the Congress is in such a bad shape that they had to outsource their leadership to three people,” Rupani said when he was asked if the tension between PAAS and Congress leaders was an opportunity for BJP. He said, when the people are with Congress then why does Congress need to outsource their leadership? After all, Congress is a 125-year-old party, and I have never seen them in such a bad shape.

“In the upcoming assembly polls, BJP was on the verge of winning 150 plus seats. In the Gujarat elections, we will get 150+ seats. BJP will do better than it has ever done before. It is all because of the way Modi Ji has worked on developing Gujarat, and now Modi Ji is doing the same with the rest of the country from New Delhi,” Rupani added. He further added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be hitting the trails of the campaign in Gujarat by November 27 or November 28.

Over the distribution of tickets, is there any internal conflict was the question asked to Rupani; he refused to any such thing happening. He said BJP is a party with a huge base. We had over 50 contenders for every seat, but the ticket only goes to one person. It is obvious that some people will get upset and oppose to this, but it is just a question of one or two days. And then, slowly things would get back to normal.
