Home News Reports Gujarat Congress collapsing like badly stacked cycles in a cycle stand

Gujarat Congress collapsing like badly stacked cycles in a cycle stand

Gujarat Congress started out with all their might to showcase a united opposition against the BJP in poll bound Gujarat. But things took an ugly turn two weeks before the voting as the Paditars and Congress leaders got down and dirty and Congress had to ‘escape’ the wrath of angry PAAS leaders.

Gujarat Congress President Bharat Solanki refused to talk with the PAAS leaders and police was called in to prevent PAAS (Patidar Ananamat Andolan Samiti) workers from entering Solanki’s house. Police had to be deployed outside Congress headquarters and the roads leading to it to avoid any untoward incident.

We had earlier reported how Congress is taking the Patidars for a ride. Now it seems there is a divide between the PAAS leaders themselves as they are not happy with some getting tickets and them being sidelined.

And as if PAAS leaders throwing shade at Congress was not enough, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) has decided to part ways with Congress and to independently field candidates on all 182 seats in Gujarat Assembly.

Interestingly, NCP had won only 2 seats in 2012 elections.

As if coalition falling apart wasn’t bad enough for Congress, Congress workers themselves are angry with Congress accusing Congress of ‘cheating’ them. Workers from Bharuch, Sonia Gandhi’s advisor Ahmed Patel’s home turf, even accused Congress of doing ‘gaddari

Important to note here that Congress had left no stone unturned and gambled away Gujarat to save Ahmed Patel’s Rajya Sabha seat in the Rajya Sabha elections held in August this year.

Meanwhile, Twitter erupted into jokes taking a dig at the soup Gujarat Congress has found itself in.
