Gujarat Assembly elections: BJP to carpet 2.0 in 93 seats tomorrow
The BJP will host Sabhas tomorrow in 93 assembly seats that will vote in the phase 2 of the assembly polls after carpet bombing through 83 seats last week in Gujarat, a state that is headed for elections. This significant BJP show of force will involve rallies with crowds ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 to 20,000 at several places. Among the leaders taking part in this programme are JP Nadda, the president of the BJP at the national level, Amit Shah, the minister of the interior of the United States, Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, Purushottam Rupala, and Mansukh Mandaviya.
From 2001 to 2014, Gujarat’s lengthiest chief minister was Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The BJP’s progress in the 2017 Gujarat Legislative elections was stalled at 99 seat out of a maximum of 182. This time, the government led by PM Modi, Amit Shah, and CR Paatil hopes to win more than 140 seats, which would be a record. The state has historically been a BJP stronghold, as well as the bjp has set its eyes on winning a seventh term in office. Gujarat, that has 182 assembly districts, will have two rounds of voting on December 1 & 5. On December 8, and is also the day of the announcement of the results for Himachal Pradesh, the votes will be counted.
PM Modi staged a road show and gave a speech in Valsad after arriving in his native state on Saturday night. The Prime Minister started his campaigning on Sunday at Somnath and had four public meetings scheduled. He later held electoral rallies in Botad, Amreli, and Dhoraji as well.
The 182-member State Legislature will be chosen in two rounds of voting on December 1 and 5.
