JP National President Shri Amit Shah on 07 November, 2017 inaugurated party’s six-day ‘Gujarat Gaurav Maha-Sampark Abhiyan’ ahead of next month’s Assembly polls by knocking on voters’ doors with a message of development. Through the door-to-door campaign, the BJP, plans to reach out to voters under 50,000-odd booths in the state.
Shri Shah launched the campaign from the Naranpura constituency, from where he was an MLA earlier, after offering prayers at the Goddess Ambaji Temple in the Sola road area. He visited around 10 residential societies, including Parasnagar, as part of the campaign.
Amid beating of drums, he along with a large number of BJP workers interacted with residents, went inside some houses, asked about their well-being and requested them to vote for the BJP in the coming elections.
The people welcomed the BJP National President, who was their MLA since 1998 but had resigned from the post after being elected to the Rajya Sabha a few months back.
Shri Amit Shah along with other party workers distributed copies of a letter written by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, to voters in every house where they campaigned.
Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Vijay Rupani, former Chief Minister Smt. Anandiben Patel and other BJP leaders also launched the door-to-door campaign from different parts of the state.
Shri Rupani campaigned in Gandhigram area of his Rajkot-2 constituency, while Patel campaigned in her Gathlodia constituency of Ahmedabad city.
The party’s senior leaders as well as booth-level workers interacted with voters under various booths across the state. The exercise is aimed at telling people about what the BJP has done for the state’s development.
The polling for the two-phase elections in the state will take place on December 09 and 14 and votes will be counted on December 18.
Gujarat BJP spokesperson Shri IK Jadeja said several Union ministers Shri Prakash Javadekar, Shri JP Nadda, Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman, Smt. Smriti Irani, Shri VK Singh and Shri Mansukh Mandaviya – would also visit Gujarat during the drive and interact with voters at their designated places.
Shri Amit Shah also posed five questions to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi which revolved around the Narmada Dam project and UPA-era grants to the state. Speaking in Gandhidham in Kutch district, Shri Shah posed the following questions to the Congress scion:
1-Why wasn’t permission granted by the Congress government for the completion of the Narmada Project?
2-Why did Congress government not permit closing of Narmada Dam gates?
3-Why was no special grant given to the Rann or salt marshes in the Kutch region?
4-Why was Gandhinagar not given central grant when UPA was in power?
5-Why was crude oil royalty grant denied to Gujarat for many years by the UPA government?
Shri Shah’s questions to Rahul Gandhi come a day after the Congress leader said the ‘satya’ (reality) of Gujarat was different from the one the BJP was portraying.
The state will hold two-phased elections on December 09 and 14 and the counting will take place on December 18.
