RSS survey presents a grim picture of BJP in Gujarat VS polls
Ahemdabad: A recent survey conducted by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) presents a dismal picture of the prospects of BJP in the next assembly elections in Gujarat and according to which the party is going to lose heavily owing to some anti-Dalit incidents and Patidar agitation.
Out of 182 the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would get only 60 to 65 seats if assembly elections are held today in Gujarat, concluded the survey conducted by the RSS through its pracharaks working on the ground level and were trained to take feedback from the people. The survey pointed out at the polarisation within the Hindu vote bank of the saffron party particularly after the Dalit agitation in Una following thrashing of youths by cow vigilantes.
- The survey rings an alarm bell for Bharatiya Janata Party revealing that even tribals are gearing up to launch their own agitation seeking government jobs or land allotments.
- Muslims may also extend their support to the Dalit community, hinted the survey.
- The RSS is planning to organize a Samajik Sadbhavna Samelan (Social Harmony Conclave) at Una, in a bid to bridge gap between Hindu and dalits.
- The sammelan will be held under the guidance of Dr Jayanti Bhadesia, in-charge of RSS Western Zone.
- A dozen of saints from Saurashtra and other parts of Gujarat are likely to attend the sammelan.
It may be recalled that the survey was done before Gujarat chief minister anandi Ben offered to resign before the coming assembly polls.
