Gu­jarat as­sem­bly bat­tle is on

The Free Press Journal - - EDIT -

The royal bat­tle is on for the Gu­jarat as­sem­bly polls as both the BJP and the Con­gress are vy­ing to get max­i­mum seats and form a govern­ment there. Amit Shah is from Gu­jarat and gar­ners max­i­mum sup­port as in other states. Whereas Rahul Gandhi is try­ing to step into the State of Prime Min­is­ter Modi. The ex­change of barbs between the two par­ties con­tinue and the vot­ers are made to look at them as sorry spec­tac­tors. Jibes fly between Amit Shah and Rahul Gandhi and it ap­pears a vote bank pol­i­tics tak­ing place. BJP as the rul­ing party has firm roots in this part of the coun­try. On the other hand, Con­gress lost its stal­warts in the state and look to fac­ing a rub­bing this time also un­der the lead­er­ship of the vice pres­i­dent. Road shows are com­mon dur­ing the elec­tions but al­le­ga­tions and counter

al­le­ga­tions gather mo­men­tum as both the par­ties are try­ing to es­tab­lish their supremacy there. From Vado­dara to Ame­thi both the par­ties are try­ing hard to win the heart of vot­ers but the out­come in Gu­jarat is very vi­tal for the Con­gress. Hav­ing won power in Pun­jab quite re­cently, there is an out­side chance to make up the loss in the last three years. BJP is strong fa­vorites to win in Gu­jarat State and in Ame­thi of course with a thin mar­gin of vic­to­ries. — Jayan­thy S Ma­niam
