Congress leader have been claiming Gujarat election will be held early this year following the sudden change in Chief Minister of Gujarat. However Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani today said the polls would be held on schedule, during the later part of this year.
Adding this he also blamed Congress for spreading rumours’ about early polls, which according to him, is the opposition party’s strategy to keep their workers busy.
“I do not see any possibility of early Assembly polls. I believe that elections will be held on schedule. This is just a rumour spread by Congress to keep their workers busy. Otherwise, I don’t believe that polls will be held early,” Mr Rupani told reporters in Ahmedabad after a function.
Solanki recently said “BJP will face severe defeat in UP and Punjab, where polls will be held in the mid of 2017. BJP may not want to cloud their prospects in Gujarat with those defeats. Thus, it is highly possible that polls in Gujarat would take place simultaneously with Punjab and UP,”Gujarat Congress President Bharatsinh Solanki had often asked the party workers to gear up for the Gujarat Assembly polls 2017.
