New Delhi, December 2: This time the BJP rout in Gujarat is certain, claims state Congress President Bharat Singh Solanki. Bharat Singh Solanki was a confident and poised self. He said that the Gujaratis are an intellectual breed, it is a land of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.
Confessing the shortcomings, Solanki said that they have failed because they could not communicate with the people of Gujarat properly. They have failed here, he admits.
Bharat Singh Solanki is confident that this time it will be a clear victory of Congress and that they would be getting more than 125 seats.
Congress is about ideology, we never indulge in match fixing with BJP, he says. Gujaratis are getting nothing, 5 industrialists are getting everything from BJP. Education has been privatised in Gujarat, no government schools have been opened under BJP. Gujaratis will not fall in BJP trap. Gujarat is way behind in Human Development Index, people are aware. Under BJP, Gujarat has weakened.
Gujarat is majorly seen as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home turf and elections here are a closely watched affair seen as a barometer of the PM’s popularity.
The elections in Gujarat have become furthermore interesting with the Patidars playing an important role in this time. What is adding to
the intense drama is the Congress lending out an olive branch to the PAAS and its pet cause. So though apparently it appears to be advantage Congress, but this can be true only to some extent. Both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi are leaving no stone unturned and the verbal war is on a day-to-day basis.
