The Election Commission is all set to announce the agenda for the Gujarat assembly polls at 1pm on Wednesday. It has been under assault from opposition parties for not declaring the Gujarat election dates. The elections will be held in Himachal Pradesh on November 9. The commission declared the date for Himachal polls on October 12.
As per the opposition, the holdup was implied to permit the BJP government in Gujarat and at the Centre to avoid necessities of the model code and provide offering to the electorate to sway votes in its support.
The polls in Gujarat will check the BJP’s fame where it administered for about 22 years. Prime Minister Narendra Modi faced the tenure of three years in Gujarat ahead of year 2014.
The polls are also apparent to be a pointer of the frame of mind of India following the government’s economic policies, particularly the execution of the Goods and Services Tax.
Prior, Chief Election Commissioner AK Joti safeguarded the holdup in declaring the polls, asserting that several factors involving climate conditions, festivals and downpour relief work were thought in the verdict.
Political parties blamed the constitutional body for giving the administered BJP an excessive benefit by postponing the execution of the model code of conduct, which in order permitted PM Narendra Modi to give speech in a rally in Gujarat.
