BJP will surpass its previous best in Gujarat polls: Union home minister Shah | Gujarat Election News

AHMEDABAD: Union home minister Amit Shah has claimed that BJP will win the coming Gujarat elections by a record margin, surpassing its previous best performances – both in terms of seats and vote share. “We shall break all our past records and and return to office once again with a thumping majority,” Shah said.
In an exclusive conversation with TOI here, Shah identified PM Narendra Modi’s popularity and performance of the BJP governments as the main reasons for his confidence. He said while Modi enjoys goodwill everywhere, people of Gujarat share a special bond with him and that has grown stronger because of his performance as the PM.

The home minister dismissed the risk of “anti-incumbency” hurting BJP, which has been in office in Gujarat for 27 years now. “Our track record speaks for itself,” he said, adding “pro-incumbency” is the dominant sentiment in the state. He noted that many issues BJP has raised since its Jan Sangh days have been resolved by the Modi government.


Making light of AAP’s challenge, Shah said BJP’s fight in the Gujarat polls was still with Congress, which despite its problems consistently held on to a sizeable vote share in the state. The home minister was confident that AAP’s ‘politics of freebies’ would not wash with Gujarat voters.
