Another shock to the Congress in Gujarat state president and legislature leader resigned
Another shock to the Congress in Gujarat Congress president Amit Chawda and Congress legislature leader Paresh Dhanani have resigned. It is learned that the Congress High Command has approved his resignation. The new state president and legislature leader are expected to be announced by the Congress by the end of March. With the Congress facing a major defeat in the local body elections, both the leaders are said to have tendered their resignations to the high command.
After a resounding victory in six municipal elections in Gujarat, the BJP has also won municipal, district panchayat and taluka panchayat elections within a week. Moreover, even in the Rajya Sabha elections, the BJP has won both the seats unopposed. In this election, the Congress has not been able to retain the seat of its late leader Ahmed Patel. Against this backdrop, the Congress state president and the legislature leader seem to have tendered their resignations.
After the Patidar agitation, the Congress had staged a strong demonstration in the 2015 elections. But now the Congress is facing a big defeat. Gujarat Assembly elections will also be held in the near future. Against that background, the local elections held so far were important for the BJP and the Congress, in which the BJP has succeeded.
