BJP victory in rural seats of Gujarat surprise farmer leaders
The clean sweep by Bharatiya Janata Party in even rural seats of Gujarat has surprised local farmer leaders. They say that inspite of overall agrarian distress and drought situation the performance of BJP is unbelievable.
Jayesh Patel, president of Khedut Samaj Gujarat is clueless as to how BJP managed to make a clean sweep in Gujarat as the results do not reflect ground situation. Increasing victory margin of BJP has also rattled him. “It seems it is more of a contest between organizational preparedness of BJP and lack of grass root workers in case of Congress. While Congress' campaign was good, there was virtual lack of booth management,” he said.
