“Modi’s nationwide good image impacts politics in Gujarat” (Video)
Picked parts of Gordhan Zadafia’s press briefing
By DeshGujarat News, Ahmedabad, 18 June 2012
“Narendra Modi’s image outside Gujarat is like ‘Vikas purush’. His such image and perception outside Gujarat makes an impact in Gujarat, therefore I have decided to hold six press conferences in next six months in Delhi. I am leaving for Delhi tomorrow and on 20th I will be addressing a press conference at Press club there,” Zadafia told DeshGujarat today in Ahmedabad on the sidelines of MahaGujarat Janata Party’s state executive meeting.
“I just touched Congress party in 2007 and it took two years to clean myself. MJP is devoted to RSS ideology and it will be a real BJP, while the BJP will become Modi Janata Party,” Zadafia said denying any chance to join hands with Congress.
Zadafia said Congress has failed in challenging the government in Gujarat. “Tell me, in last 10 years which of the Congress leaders went to jail, protesting against the state govt?” Zadafia said adding that Gujarat Congress only is active on the floor of assembly in doing the things that would give media publicity.
“Those BJP men whose tickets will be denied, those feeling neglected in BJP will come and join MJP, there’s no other option for them,” he added.
When asked whether his party has booth-level strength, Zadafia replied, “I don’t believe that it was the booth arrangement that made BJP victorious in 2007 and 2009. In 2009 Lok Sabha election, BJP cadre in Gujarat was disappointed with party leadership and inactive, but common people walked two steps forward, came out to vote and made BJP victorious. Such voters when saw goons on Congress booths, they took strong decision to vote for BJP. BJP workers and cadre is already in poor mood, there’s need to change the mood of the people,” Zadafia further added.
Zadafia said Modi has already lost central Gujarat, and he will face trouble in Saurashtra where majority of seats are located. Zadafia said BJP will gain in south Gujarat, but there are fewer seats in that region.
Zadafia said his party would contest all 182 seats, and he himself would contest from Bhavnagar district.
He said bad days for Modi will start from July-end when there will be an earthquake like situation. Zadafia hinted entry of Keshubhai Patel, Kashiram Rana etc in MJP in that period.
Zadafia said his party would start team-Anna style agitation in Gujarat for Lokayukta. He said he has asked his party workers to be ready to go to jail while agitating against the state government.
