The Gujrat State Assembly election has entered crucial stage, just short of a war between Congress and BJP.
Rahul Gandhi is approaching this election on alliances and understandings thus deviating from the subtle formulae of previous elections.
With induction of Alpesh Thakor ,the leaders of other castes communities like Dalits ,tribals and Patels have entered into deals with Congress Party , a firm personal understanding with Rahul Gandhi to target the might of BJP.
Rahul Gandhi has a definite strategy for challenging BJP in its den.
With Alpesh in Congress ,the OBC belt of North Gujrat is taken care of . For SC vote ,Jignesh Mevani is being consistently campaigning among SC belt to vote for the Congress.
And the Patidars led by Hardik Patel ,having in principle accepted PAAS demands, the Congress hopes to see Patidars vote for it this time particularly in Saurashtra.
Just to ameliorate PAAS the Congress revised its list of candidates to accommodate Hardik patidar quota leaders.
The Congress leader spokesperson Manish Doshi said that the changes were resorted to win the elections.
Last but not the least BTP ( JDU faction of Sharad Yadav) led by Chhotubhai Vasva a tallest tribal leader of South Gujrat and now backing the Congress .
Though the Congress is upbeat this time but BJPis leaving no stone unturned to retain the state .
In most of the urban areas election discourse is all about Modi.
For instance Anand the home of milk and butter ,once stronghold of the Congress, has now been a BJP favourite.
This is the area where patels speak against PAAS and they support Modi as their leader. The change was due to communal polarization .
But however some MLAs claim that there is fierce opposition to BJP now and due to absence of communal polarization in the current elections the wind is strictly in favour of the Congress.
