What about Gujarat poll dates, asks Cong.

The Hindu - - NEWS - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

The Congress, while ex­press­ing con­fi­dence that it will re­tain Hi­machal Pradesh in the forth­com­ing elec­tions — dates for which were an­nounced on Thurs­day — said it was sur­prised the dates for Gujarat poll were not an­nounced si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

“The dates for Gujarat were not an­nounced, and there will be a gap of more than one month be­fore the re­sults are an­nounced,” party MP Ran­jeet Ran­jan said. “It in­di­cates that the BJP is scared of the out­come in Gujarat.” She hinted that per­haps it wished to make some pre-elec­tion an­nounce­ment for Gujarat, be­fore an­nounc­ing the poll dates.
