BJP Releases Second List Of Candidates For Gujarat Polls

Congress releases list of 77 candidates unhappy PAAS attacks party office

The Battle Royale will be in Rajkot West where Congress' Indranil Rajyaguru will take on Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.

Days after Hardik Patel expressed satisfaction over the options given by the Congress, Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leaders have reportedly given the party a 24-hour deadline to declare their stand on the reservation status for the community.

Bambhaniya's statement came after his meeting with Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee President Bharat Singh Solanki.

With this repeat-heavy first list, murmurs have begun in the party about the sitting minister and MLAs on the remaining 110 seats may also be repeated.

Neither Congress leaders nor PAAS members have divulged the details of the quota formula the Congress offered to the Patidars, who are part of the upper castes in Gujarat and thus not entitled to reservation.

Facing a stiff challenge from the Congress in Gujarat, the BJP is going for unprecedented micro-management in the Assembly polls to retain its bastion.

Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Arsenal
Arsenal's record signing has only completed 90 minutes once since his summer arrival but Wenger says there is no lack of trust. Ian Wright has labelled Alexandre Lacazette a "predator", and states that he should start every Arsenal match.

While the PAAS, led by Mr Patel, had demanded around 20 seats from the Congress, Mr Thakore, who has recently joined the Congress, has demanded 12 seats. The last date for the filing of nominations for the first round is Tuesday.

The first phase of the polls in Gujarat will cover 89 constituencies in 19 districts while the second phase will cover 93 constituencies spread across 14 districts.

The BJP has already announced 106 candidates out of the total 182 seats in the two lists that have been released so far.

Summary: The party said the BJP allegedly leaked the sex CD of the leader because it could not counter him.

While the PAAS, which is driving a hard bargain with the grand old party given its hold on the numerically strong community, has demanded almost 20 seats from the Congress quota, the Other Backward Classes (OBC) group, led by Alpesh Thakor, has demanded 12.

"I have declared it earlier and I am declaring it today as well that I will not fight the Gujarat Assembly elections", Mr Solanki said.
