Elections 2022 News LIVE Updates: Gujarat Poll Dates to be Announced Today; Congress a Party of ‘Raja-Ranis’, Says Amit Shah in Himachal

Himachal Pradesh, no one will actually get a chance.

With less than two weeks left for the Himachal Pradesh assembly elections, the political heat in the state is rising every day. While Congress is extruding confidence in the prospect of forming the next government in the state with a comfortable majority, the BJP, with anti-incumbency weighing heavy on its governance amidst the dropping of 11 sitting MLAs and many party leaders in the fray as Independents, seems to be banking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s charisma, instead of flashing its own achievement card.

Meanwhile, BJP president J P Nadda is set release the party’s ‘vision document’ (manifesto) for the Himachal Pradesh assembly polls on Friday.

Building his campaign with the slogan ‘rivaj badlega’ (electoral traditions will change) as the party’s governments have repeated in the recent Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana polls, BJP president JP Nadda in his first three rallies on his home turf, drove his point home by saying, “The BJP does what it says.”

The Congress on Tuesday launched the ‘Parivartan Sankalp Yatra’ in poll-bound Gujarat. 145 public meetings and 95 rallies will be held along the route covering more than 5,400 km. The yatras were launched from Vadgam, Bhuj, Somnath, Fagvel and Jambusar, party leaders said.

Congress has alleged that AAP, which is emerging as a strong contender, is contesting elections in Gujarat to help BJP. Claiming that the fight in Gujarat is between Congress and BJP, party general secretary Jairam Ramesh said AAP entered the fray to cut into Congress votes. The EC is likely to announce the dates for the Gujarat Assembly election this week.
