About Gujarat Assembly Elections Political Scenario
This state has been colored in saffron since a long time now, selecting BJP with majority every time. MLAs of Gujarat are already very experienced and they know what public wants out of them. It is like a home to BJP, where they have settled themselves very well. current PM Narendra Modi has won three consecutive election here, ruling as CM of Gujarat from 2001 to 2014. After 2014 parliamentary elections, Narendra Modi took oath as Prime Minister,leaving the chair for Anandiben Patel. Later Vijay Rupani took charge as CM of Gujarat and he is still incumbent.
Gujarat leadership witnessed frequent changes after Narendra Modi, which is never a good sign. Congress will be looking forward to take benefit of the situation, as Modi is absent for the first time since 2001. His absece as CM face will surely make things hard for BJP, and better for Congress. INC might make a come back and can turn the upcoming Gujarat elections result of 2017, in their favour. Inspite of Modis' absence as CM, BJP will have him by their side as PM of the country. Overall political scenario has changed in Gujarat assembly elections, and the true preparation will start only after declaration of election dates.
