Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections 2017: Vijay Rupani’s stronghold keeps wavering in Rajkot west

Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections 2017: Vijay Rupani’s stronghold keeps wavering in Rajkot west
Written by Abhishek Rana

Vijay Rupani’s influence in Gujarat has been wavering in the Gujarat’s Legislative Assembly elections, as most of people still relate the state to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His performance in the elections itself has been impressive, as he was trailing behind Indranil Rajyaguru, but has now made up for lost momentum in a leap of votes. He is fighting from Rajkot west. Indranil is the current MLA from Rajkot East, and he is the richest candidate in the whole Assembly election. Vijay Rupani has been targeted from the Congress candidates, who feel that he has done nothing to improve the lives of the Gujarati population.

It was also commented that most of the people have only the slightest of awareness about him, and aren’t that impressed with his contributions to the five term that he served. Even though he is the Chief Minster of Gujarat, Indranil is giving him very much a neck to neck fight, with Rupani trailing behind him with 400 votes. Vijay had come under some criticism from people previously when he banned the Padmavati movie before even watching it, and continued to comment on it even after the Supreme Court had advised against it.

Vijay has previously ensured that the BJP party is going to win 150 seats in Gujarat, but that dosen’t seem to be the case anymore, as he himself is trailing in the elections. He is 61 years old, and was a businessman before he came into politics. It is yet to be seen if he is going to triumph in his own district and be able to secure the position of Chief Minister again. Now, as he is leading with 10 thousand votes, maybe his wishes will come true indeed.
