Ahmedabad, 4 September(Wishav Warta): Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday launched his party’s campaign for the Gujarat assembly elections with an audacious claim that the party would return to power in the state and that it will give tickets largely to grassroots workers.
“Grassroots workers will be fielded for the assembly elections,” Gandhi said during a direct interaction with party member from all the 182 constituencies at the Sabarmati riverfront in line with the party’s focus on strengthening and revving up the organisation in Gujarat. The Congress has been put of power in Gujarat for almost two decades. But Gandhi sounded confident that the party would come to power after the polls scheduled later this year.
“This time, I firmly believe no one can stop the Congress from forming the next government in Gujarat,” he said at the outreach programme. He also said that the party will soon select the candidates for the polls likely to be held in November-December. He added that no leader from any other party joining the Congress ahead of the polls will be given ticket.
