BJP landslide in Gujarat rural polls buries Congress
AHMEDABAD: Gujarat’s countryside was painted saffron on Tuesday as BJP captured all 31 district panchayats, the majority of the 81 municipalities and over 200 of the 231 taluka (block) panchayats that had gone to polls on February 28.
With the resounding victory, which came a week after the had swept all six municipal corporations, BJP turned the tables on Congress, which had made massive oral gains in 2015 on the back of a violent Patidar reservation stir led by Hardik Patel and the Dalit stir championed by Jignesh Mevani.
In 2015, BJP had been decimated in 24 out of the 31 district panchayats, besides losing in 138 out of the 228 taluka panchayats. The had, however, kept its semi-urban base intact by wng 45 out of 57 municipalities.
Congress was pushed further towards oblivion in Gujarat after failing to win a single district panchayat and taking a battering in the municipalities. In effect, the grand old ’s grassroot ssupport was significantly uproed in the saffron storm.
AAP, which had stunned all in the municipality polls by wng 27 seats in the Patidar strongholds of Surat, made a modest entry into the rural bodies by wng 42 out of the 2,097 seats it contested.

Zero impact of duplicate farmers prest.
These results will be repeated in West Bengal, Assam and Pondicherry.
In TN BJP will form govt with Alliance and CPI will form govt in Ker,
RaGa will disappear for 1 year and congress will search for new presi nt.
After 1 year they discover RaGa as their presi nt.
Why Congress performance is so dismal? Answer is very simple. It has no strength of its own. So, the fall of Congress is understandable
Gujarat model will be repeated across India and Congress mukt Bharat will be a reality. Jai Shri Ram. Jai Hind, Vande Mataram.
We are bhakts we don't mind paying rupees 200 per litre for petrol or rupees 1000 for gas bottle,we love modi we don't care about money.
So farmers of Gujarat are happy with new farm laws and thus supported BJP and Modi.
Not just Gujarat. The entire Nation's Country side will be painted saffron soon. Kriminals, Scamsters, Left Liberal Frauds will find themselves behind bars.
As expected. Nothing new. Congies cast po itics has ran it's course...
