Express press service

AHMEDABAD: The sudden visit of one BJP leader after another to Gujarat has led to speculation that snap elections may be held in the state. Shortly after the Prime Minister’s visit to Gujarat from April 18 to 20, the Union Minister and Head of Gujarat, Bhupendra Yadav, is paying a two-day visit to Gujarat. On Friday, Union Minister Anurag Thakur also came to Gujarat to attend the AYUSH Summit. Additionally, the BJP National Chairman will visit Gujarat on April 26 to review election preparations.

BJP may hold early elections to give opposition parties less time to prepare as Aam Aadmi party slowly builds its organization in Gujarat, while Congress also plans to field Prashant Kishor this time, experts say .

Amid speculation, Gujarat BJP official and Union Labor and Employment Minister Bhupendra Yadav landed in the state capital on Thursday morning to assess the situation on the ground with comments from leaders of State. It comes as State Unit Chairman CR Patil conveyed the achievements of the BJP government to every household and reached out to voters with the One Day One District agenda. During his visit, he meets professionals, saints of religious sects, social activists and party officials.

According to party sources, Yadav on Friday held a meeting with officials from the party’s media cell, booth management committees, as well as other cells and sister organizations. He asked for comments on people’s perception of state and central governments.

He also held a meeting with the council of ministers at the official residence of the chief minister in the presence of the leader of Gujarat BJP. On his return to Delhi, Yadav will inform the party’s national chairman, JP Nadda, of his visit. Incidentally, Nadda is likely to travel to the state on April 26 to meet with state leaders as the BJP prepares for the upcoming assembly elections.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Anurag Thakur was also on a one-day visit to Gujarat. He arrived in Gandhinagar to attend the AYUSH World Summit. Speaking to the media, he claimed that BJP will perform even better in Gujarat than in UP.

Political analyst Mani Lal Patel said: “It is important to note that Prime Minister Modi’s schedule was changed from April 20 to April 18 and immediately after the departure of the Prime Minister, Bhupendra Yadav arrived in Gujarat for a visit two days and called a meeting of ministers of state in the CM bungalow. Gujarat BJP President was also present in the ministers meeting with Yadav and BJP National President JP Nadda suddenly comes to Gujarat on April 26. It’s all going in one direction and it’s a snap election.

He further said, “The BJP leaders denied holding early elections, but they also denied that Vijay Rupani’s government would change. But everyone knows what happened.”

However, another analyst, Dilip Patel, denied the speculation, saying, “There is no rival against BJP in Gujarat. In fact, all decisions on Gujarat are taken by Prime Minister Modi and in keeping with the nature of the Prime Minister, he will not declare a snap election under any circumstances.
