Look, who’s standing up to Modi!
Even as the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is making all out efforts to regain power in the ensuing state assembly election, senior party leaders are worried about the threat posed by former chief minister Keshubhai Patel who has been organising Parivartan sabhas across Gujarat to woo the voters and also old friends of the party to teach a lesson to the Modi government.

To counter this, the BJP has chalked a programme of Maha Vijay Sammelans at all district headquarters which would be addressed by state BJP president R C Faldu and the party`s national president Purshottam Rupala, who is a close confidante of Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

These district level meetings of the BJP workers would be held at all 26 district headquarters from Wednesday. This is a part of the saffron party’s preparations for the assembly polls which are due by the end of this year. Chief Election Commission V S Sampath and his deputies have already visited Gandhinagar and supervised the arrangements being made to conduct polling in a free and fair manner.

Keshubhai has addressed Parivartan meetings at all big cities and towns in Saurashtra and south Gujarat. He addressed rallies at Rajkot, Vadodara last week and one at Surat where old BJP workers celebrated Patel’s birthday in presence of a large number of Patel community leaders. However, senior GPCC leader and former Gujarat Chief Minister Shankersinh Vaghela who has ben made election committeee chairman by AICC for Gujarat assembly election preferred not to celebrate his birthday pleading that he was out in Delhi for party work.More than 80,000 workers a majority of them vaghela supporters had celebrated his birthday with a big fanfare in 2011.

Keshubhai Patel and another former BJP chief minister and former union minister Kashiram Rana have used the platform of parivartan sabhas to blast Modi regime alleging that Narendra Modi has miserably failed to check dteriorating law and order situation and corruption in the administration.

In a retaliatory move, BJP leaders are leaving no stone unturned in lambasting the Congress led coalition government at the Centre and the misdeeds of the UPA ministers in its second term at the centre.
