Junagadh District Election News Samachar

Congress gearing up for by-elections in Gujarat.

Ahmedabad, Aug 10 Gujarat Congress, which recently wrested Junagadh Municipal Corporation from BJP, is gearing up for by-elections to seven Assembly seats.

"There is a lot of enthusiasm in the workers at the district level and this I believe will help us win the entire seven Assembly seat in the by-elections," state Congress President Siddharth Patel said here today.

"Based on the inputs from workers, the downfall of the BJP has begun following the recent victories of the party in the Junagadh municipal polls and Amul dairy elections where a Congress-led panel won," Patel said.

"Planning has begun for the by-elections. Workers are looking into booth management and other activities related to the elections. The responsibility has been divided between various leaders," he added.

The bypolls would be held in Chotila, Kodinar, Dhoraji, Jasdan, Dehgam, Sami and Danta. Polling date is yet to be announced. The seats have fallen vacant either because of death or resignation of sitting MLAs following their victory in Lok Sabha polls.

BJP MLA from Kodinar Dinu Solanki won the Lok Sabha election for Junagadh. Congress legislators Vitthal Radadiya (Dhoraji) and Kuvanrji Bavaliya (Jasdan) won Porbander and Rajkot Lok Sabha seats respectively.
