Gandhinagar, 9 February 2021
In Gujarat, 75 percent of non-BJP and non-Congress candidates in local body elections can be a major loss for the Congress. BJP’s B team is getting active in local elections. Congress has no B team, because people of Gujarat say that BJP’s B team is Congress.
Apart from BJP and Congress, other parties will do very well for the Congress in the local body elections in Gujarat. BJP will win in urban areas but there are allegations that other parties are moving ahead due to fear of defeat in rural areas.
He wants to increase his chances of winning by encouraging parties. These include the Aam Aadmi Party, BSP, SP, Shiv Sena, NCP or Owaisi. Which will harm the Congress and not the BJP. Independents are also a big challenge for the Congress.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia held a roadshow in various cities of Gujarat. Kejriwal can also visit Gujarat. Thus the Aam Aadmi Party fielded its candidates in the state corporation. The NCP has also fielded its candidates. Samajwadi Party and BSP candidates are standing.
Bharuch MLA Chhotu Vasava has fielded his candidates in some body elections by aligning with Owaisi’s party which can completely defeat Congress candidates. His All India Majlis has fielded candidates from Ittihadul Muslimeen i.e. AIMIM Party.
Rebels of BJP and Congress are contesting elections from these parties. Shiv Sena is contesting not all seats but in some special places.
Some party leaders are in touch with the BJP, who have fielded candidates for Congress strongholds.
