Gujarat elections: 10% rise in Congress candidates with serious criminal charges

Gujarat elections: 10% rise in Congress candidates with serious criminal charges”

Campaigning for the first phase of assembly polls in Gujarat ended today.

Besides, the meetings of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, his Rajasthan counterpart Vasundhara Raje and Congress leaders were also cancelled, while the State administration swung into action to deal with the cyclone. A party-wise analysis found that 13 out of 86 BJP candidates were facing serious criminal charges, while the Congress gave tickets to as many as 18 such candidates for the second phase of the polls. Fearing defeat, do they have to rely on such dirty tricks?

"The moot issue is that the BJP is trying very, very hard to divert the narrative from its performance of last 22 years to a divisive agenda".

In 2012, out of total 180 candidates analysed, 24 BJP candidates were facing serious charges, said the comparative analysis released by ADR. Hence, their reliance on lies and propaganda. Addressing an election rally at Surat in poll-bound Gujarat, Mr Modi said, some tough decisions had to be taken after the NDA government came to power but people have trusted his decisions.

He said the Congress has a vision for Gujarat's development and it will come forward with creative solutions to provide employment for the youth.

What is more interesting is the fact that these posters ask Muslims of the state to maintain unity and vote for Congress to make Ahmed Patel the chief minister.

Congress's chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala also hit out at the saffron party, tweeting, "Using "jumla" (rhetoric) is only their (BJP's) manifesto".

"But doing something like putting up posters of opposition parties and deciding that Ahmed Patel will be our chief minister is not right", he told reporters in Ahmedabad.
