Gujarat Congress nominates 17 candidates for Jamnagar Lok Sabha seats, Hardik Patel does not make the cut

As many as 17 names are forwarded for Jamnagar constituency to Congress high command

In a press conference convened by the Jamnagar Congress chief and organizational secretary, the candidature of 17 nominees and their bio-data have been handed over to the party high command for the selection of the candidates for the single Jamnagar Lok Sabha seat. Patidar agitation leader Hardik Patel, who recently joined the Congress party in presence of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi is conspicuously absent from the list.

The 17 candidates proposed for the Jamnagar lok Sabha seat include: Adityasinh Jadeja, district party chief JT Patel, , Bhikhubhai Varotariya, district panchayat president Vashrambhai Rathod, Jentibhai Donga, Jentibhai Sabhaya, Ashokbhai Lal, Nathabhai Gagaliya, MLA Chirag Kalariya, MLA and former MP Vikram madam, Hemantbhai Khava, Jivanbhai Kumbharvadia, Pujaben Nakum, Mulubhai Kandoriya, Meramanbhai Goriya, Mitalben Goriya and Arvindbhai Gajera.

It is notable to highlight that for a single Lok Sabha seat of Jamnagar, Congress Jamnagar Unit has shared 17 candidates with the party high-command to arrive at the final decision of whom should be selected among the proposed candidates. It also reflects the Congress Party’s indecisiveness and inefficiency in zeroing on a fewer number of candidates for selecting the Lok Sabha candidates. With the tide appearing to favour the BJP, the Congress local units do not appear in the mood of annoying their workers and have left the inconvenient decision of selecting the candidates to the central committee.

One more highlighting factor in the list of 17 candidates proposed by the Jamnagar Congress Unit is the conspicuous absence of Hardik Patel from the list. Risen to fame by the Patidar agitation, Hardik Patel had recently joined Congress and expressed his desire to fight the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Jamnagar constituency. However, with his name not on the list of the proposed candidates for the Jamnagar constituency, the Jamnagar Congress Unit has reposed little faith on him and summarily scorned his candidature.
