Why Are Gujarat Elections One of the Toughest Elections for Congress?

Political experts are saying that the upcoming Gujarat elections will be one of the toughest for the Congress, as it will be dealing with the national ruling party BJP in the home state of Prime minister Narendra Modi and also struggling to secure its position as opposition as parties like Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) are making road harder for Congress and breaking Congress’s voters.

However, a Congress’s state spokesperson denied it and claimed that Gujarat’s people would vote for their party as BJP’s misrule over two decades has now become unbearable for them.

In previous state elections in 2017, BJP had won 99 seats, and Congress managed to win 77 seats amongst 182 assembly member seats.

Moreover, many political observers feel that Congress lacks strong local leaders as their party members. This may be the prominent reason for Congress’s continuous loss in previous elections.

Suresh Samani, a Rajkot-based political observer, told PTI that the Gujarat election would be most strenuous for the Congress, mentioning that since 1995, the party hasn’t won single assembly polls.

Samani also mentioned that the farming community does not have much to complain about. In the last five years, the BJP government purchased their crops at a reasonable minimum support price (MPS); earlier, they were not getting reasonable amounts for their crops.

He said that “urban and higher middle-class voters support BJP despite rising inflation for multiple reasons, and a prominent one is Hindutva.

Shifting to BJP

Also, in the last five years, many solid political leaders of Congress have shifted to BJP, which is also problematic for the party.

In addition, Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party and Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen are planning to replace Congress as the main opposition.

BJP has a solid vote bank, who will vote BJP no matter which party comes, but Congress lacks a loyal vote bank.

The absence of a loyal vote bank and the public is also not in the mood for another chance as they believe that they have already given enough chances to Congress; now it is the turn of other parties.

Currently, the road to winning the Gujarat election in 2022 is full of challenges and hardship for Congress.

Now, Congress needs a miraculous strategy to win this election. First, they must counter BJP’s political agenda and handle the pressure of two new entries.

We all know AAP had already defeated Congress and won the Punjab election 2022 with a historic margin.

So, the entry of AAP in the Gujarat election is alarming for both BJP and Congress.

However, there are chances that any political party among Congress, BJP and AAP can win the Gujarat election this year.

Congress must only gain the public’s trust again; it would be a very critical task for them as other parties won’t allow them to do the same.

As the citizens of India, we pray that the best political win and whosoever wins the election shall fulfill their promises.
