Barabanki (UP) November 13
There have only been two political parties, BJP and Congress, in Gujarat and never a third, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brother Prahlad Modi said on Sunday, dismissing the AAP’s challenge to the December elections in the State Assembly.
He also claimed that Congress was now “nil” in the state and the BJP had “come to full strength”.
The elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5, and the results will be announced with those of Himachal Pradesh on December 8. The Hill State went to the polls on Saturday.
“In Gujarat State, the Congress is now ‘shunya’ (zero) and the BJP has reached its full strength. Only two parties, Congress and BJP, clicked in the state. There has never been a third party (in Gujarat),” said Prahlad Modi, who is in Barabanki at the invitation of BJP leader Sumit Singh.
His remarks came after he was asked by reporters about the prospects of the AAP, which has launched a high-flying campaign, in Gujarat’s polls.
Prahlad Modi said he had a family relationship with Singh and came on his invitation, and there was no other reason for his visit.
The people of the country have a prime minister to their liking and also in 2024 the BJP will again form its government, he claimed.
