Gujarat might not see early polls, indicates BJP president Amit Shah. “Narendrabhai no vijayrath November ma Gujarat aavse (Narendra Modi’s victory run will reach Gujarat in November).” The state is due for polls in November-December. However, the speculation of early polls started after BJP’s significant victory in the recent assembly polls in four out of the five states.
While addressing BJP workers at Sabarmati riverfront, Shah said, “After 325 seats in UP, go out with confidence that we will get more than 150 seats in Gujarat.”
Gujarat has a total of 182 assembly seats.
Shah also listed out development programmes and development work done by Modi as Gujarat CM. “Before the BJP’s win in 1995 (in Gujarat), there used to be curfew for 200 days in a year, and in Ahmedabad, Begum-Baadshah used to rule. But the BJP drove away those who used to stab.”
It was during Congress rule that seeds of communalism, casteism, and politics of vote bank were sown, he added.
