Seat swap fails to pay off for most

For some big names who contested the recently concluded assembly polls, the gamble to fight from a seat other than their traditional one failed to pay off, pushing them to the losing side.The most high-octane contest was between Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Congress MLA Indranil Rajguru from Rajkot West constituency. Rajguru, the second richest candidate in the fray, with assets worth Rs 141 crore, had won from Rajkot East in 2012 but shifted to West in a bid to challenge Rupani. His bold move left him beaten by a margin of over 53,000 votes. Contesting against the CM, though, is likely to help his political profile.A shock result from the election was the defeat of senior Congress leader Shaktisinh Gohil.After losing from the Bhavnagar Rural seat in 2012, Gohil had been elected to the assembly from Abdasa in Kutch in the 2014 by-election. This time, Gohil contested from Mandvi and was drubbed by BJP’s Virendrasinh Jadeja by over 9,000 votes.Senior BJP leader Ramanlal Vora was also among the candidates who contested from a different seat and lost. Vora had won from Idar (SC) seat in Sabarkantha five times in a row between 1995 and 2012. Wary of anti-incumbency, the BJP shifted him to Dasada (SC) seat in Surendranagar in this election. The move, however, failed to help him, as he lost by a little under 4,000 votes.Gujarati film actor Hitu Kanodiya, who the BJP fielded from Idar seat in Vora’s place, won by close to 15,000 votes. Kanodiya had contested unsuccessfully from Kadi (SC) seat in the 2012 elections.Former MLA Kanu Kalsaria, meanwhile, tried his luck from Mahuva in Bhavnagar this time but lost. He had won in 2007 from the same seat. In 2012, however, he had contested unsuccessfully from Gariadhar.Senior BJP leader Dileep Sanghani, who contested from Dhari seat in these elections, also lost. He had also contested unsuccessfully against Congress’s Paresh Dhanani in 2012 from Amreli, the seat he had won from in 2007.Bavku Undhad is another senior leader who contested from a different seat and ended up on the losing side. Undhad had won in 2012 from Lathi, but stood from Amreli in the recent elections. He was defeated by Congress’s Paresh Dhanani by a margin of over 12,000 votes.A few candidates, though, also managed to defy the trend.Ex-minister and MLA from Akota, Saurabh Patel, won from his traditional Botad seat in these elections. Former state BJP president RC Faldu won from Jamnagar South this time. In 2012, he had contested from Jamnagar Rural but had lost.THE EXCEPTIONSA few candidates managed to defy the trend. Among them is MLA from Akota, Saurabh Patel, who won from his traditional Botad seat, and former state BJP president RC Faldu

Delhi HC dismisses plea for ‘shaheed’ status to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru

The Delhi High Court on Monday dismissed a petition seeking that freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru be given the status of martyr, saying it cannot issue such a direction.”The plea is dismissed. We cannot issue such a direction,” a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar said.The petitioner failed to reply to the court’s query on whether there is any law under which the court has the power to issue any such direction.The plea filed by advocate Birender Sangwan sought grant of ‘shaheed’ (martyr) status to Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru who were hanged by the Britishers in 1931.”The grant of shaheed status is very much essential for a martyr and it is the legal right of a martyr to have such a status declared to them, thus it is an expression of gratitude towards them,” the plea said.Bhagat Singh and Rajguru had in 1928 fatally shot a British junior police officer, John Saunders at Lahore in present day Pakistan, mistaking him for a British police superintendent.A special tribunal was constituted by Lord Irwin, the then Viceroy of India, which had sentenced the duo along with Sukhdev to death by hanging at Lahore Jail.

Gujarat elections 2017: All eyes on these seats, will exit polls create any upsets?

The exit polls give a clear majority of more than 50 per cent seats to BJP in the Gujarat Assembly polls, but the candidates of both parties kept their finger crossed for D-Day, to be held on Monday. There are possibilities that upsets can happen in some seats.Rajkot West: This is a high-profile seat in Gujarat as Chief Minister Vijay Rupani will face one of the richest candidates in Gujarat, Indranil Rajguru. The BJP organisation under the guidance of Rupani worked hard but this won’t be a cake walk. Though the BJP tried to establish a bond with Rajkot, Rajguru also ran an effective social media campaign here. Dalits, Muslims and the Patels would have preferred the Congress candidate in these polls. This could spoil the mathemetical game for Rupani.Bhavnagar West: Gujarat BJP chief Jitu Vaghani is contesting from this seat and the rival candidate from Congress Dilipsinh Gohil who comes from Rajput community. Alike Rupani, Vaghani also is facing Patel fury. Moreover, Rajput community was up in arms. Other communities like upper castes and OBC could be with the BJP but there will be neck and neck rivalry.Mehsana: Poll battle in this Patel dominated seat is between BJP candidate Nitin Patel and Jivabhai Patel, a millionaire who contested on a Congress’ ticket. Tje youth and women from Patel community would have voted for Congress under the influence of Patidar reservation agitation impact. Moreover, Nitin Patel is an outsider for the voters of this constituency as he belongs to Kadi town. He, however, can bank on the local BJP workers’ hard work.Porbandar: BJP candidate Babu Bokhiria been challenged by senior Congress leader and former Opposition leader Arjun Modhwadia. Modhwadia had lost the earlier polls by more than 17,000 votes but focused more over the local issues and corrected errors. This will weigh on Bokhiria. On the other side, Bokhiria has focused more on Kharva(fisherman) community here besides Mehr voters that could add up to the total tally of votes for him.Radhanpur: Alpesh Thakor is contesting polls here on Congress’ ticket while BJP candidate is sober and low profile Lavingji Thakor. This is Thakor community dominated area and the might of both the party candidates is to be tested here. Alpesh Thakor has gained sympathy of women voters after he ran the drive for stict implementation of prohibition in state and youth also supported him.Vadgam: Dalit agitation leader Jignesh Mevani contested the polls as an independent candidate supported by Congress. BJP candidate Vijay Chakravarti is facing the challenge. The Dalits consider Mevani as an outsider here. Chaudhary community domi9nates the region and could vote for BJP.Vatva: Home minister Pradipsinh Jadeja is contesting polls here as BJP candidate and the Congress candidate is Bipin Patel. The Patel community could vote against Jadeja, who may get breather as polarisation in Muslim votes are likely.Sayajigunj: This Vadodara seat was almost BJP’s fort but the triangular contest among BJP candidate Jitu Sukhadia, Congress candidate Narendra Ravat and local front of Rashtriya Samajvadi Party’s candidate Rajesh Ayre are contesting polls.Surat city: Surat city again was under the influence of BJP and majority of urban voters here voted for BJP always here. The Patel agitation and impact of Hardik Patel over the voters in city from Saurashtra and North Gujarat region could create upsets for BJP here.Mangrol (Surat): Congress candidate is Narsinh Vasava while the BTP candidate is Uttam Vasava. The polarisation of votes could go in favour or in opposite to any of the candidates on this seat.Bhuj: This seat in Kutch region seems slipping from the hands of BJP, after the anti-incumbency factor prevailing against candidate Dr. Nima Acharya. On the other side, Congress gave the ticket to social worker Adam Chaki who could get the support from Muslim community. Only BJP organisation’s hardwork could save Acharya here.CLOSE CALLSIn Bhavnagar West, Gujarat BJP chief Jitu Vaghani is contesting from this seat and the rival candidate from Congress Dilipsinh Gohilc, which will be a close fight. In Radhanpur, Alpesh Thakor is contesting polls here on Cgress’ ticket while BJP candidate is sober and low profile Lavingji Thakor.

Gujarat Election 2017: In Rupani vs Rajguru battle, a son and daughter sweat it out

In Rajkot West, where biggies Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and Congress’s billionaire candidate Indranil Rajguru are contesting each other, the campaign scene is not all dominated by party workers. The two have their own children doing the legwork for the dads.Rupani’s son Rushabh and Rajguru’s daughter Darshnil are far frequent visitors to their constituency than their fathers.Rushabh who is pursuing engineering from Nirma University in Ahmedabad has shifted base to Rajkot these days.Starting from social media campaigns, to door-to-door visits to meet voters, to mobilisation of young party workers and drawing other poll strategies, they are all overseen by Rushabh.Rushabh, who never took interest in politics earlier — Rupani never contested Assembly polls and contested only the Assembly bypolls in 2014, and that was a sure victory for him.A BJP leader from Rajkot said, “Rushabh is managing every small detail related to polls as Vijaybhai is away. We and our organisation are working on our own strategy, but Rushabh has a different perspective. He and his cousin, Amey, have been taking care of the social media campaign and other canvassing. He also makes slogans that are appealing to the public.” When asked about his campaign work, Rushabh shies away.Like Rushabh, Darshneel, too, was never involved in any poll before this.Talking to DNA, she said, “I am doing this with special interest. I am managing different events of poll campaign, social media campaign and road shows. I am pursuing my graduation course from Indira Gandhi National Open University, but have made time to help my father with his campaign.”Indranil has several Congress youth workers in his team. Darshneel is a motivation for them.Harshit Jani, a party member, says, “Darshneel is managing everything here. From top to bottom and left to right, she is present everywhere. We are also charged by seeing her enthusiasm, and we have her guidance.”
