Guj polls battle of prestige for BJP: Shah
BJP national president Amit Shah on Monday dubbed the forthcoming Assembly elections in Gujarat as a battle of prestige, even as he reminded party workers of the target of winning over 150 of the 182 seats in the Assembly.

“The people of Gujarat have since the 1990s blessed us with two-thirds majority, but now we want a victory by three-fourths majority. When Modi was the chief minister, we got 127 seats. Now that he is the prime minister, should we not expect a higher figure,” Shah asked cheering party workers.

Shah was addressing a mammoth gathering of the party’s page presidents at the Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan, organised on completion of the BJP’s Gujarat Gaurav Yatra that had begun on October 1. The yatra covered almost 4,500 km across 149 of the 182 Assembly
seats.

Shah also hit out at critics of Modi’s pet project of a bullet train between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, saying the people of Gujarat love development.
