Shweta Bhatt ‘sad’ after losing to Narendra Modi
After facing defeat in Maninagar Assembly, Shweta Bhatt, said she was sad “that the people of Gujarat have failed to see the fact hidden behind the colourful campaign.”
Ahmedabad: After facing defeat in Maninagar Assembly, Shweta Bhatt, the wife of suspended IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt, said she was sad “that the people of Gujarat have failed to see the fact hidden behind the colourful campaign.”
"The result is unfortunate for the people of Gujarat. The people can`t see the truth. The people of Gujarat deserve Modi. They are getting Modi," Bhatt told a news channel here.
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi won from Maninagar Assembly constituency by over 86,373 votes trouncing Congress rival Shweta.
Modi polled 1,20,470 votes, while Bhatt got 34,097 votes.
Asserting that she would continue to work for the people of Gujarat and for truth, Bhatt rebuffed allegations that she was made a scape-goat by the Congress.
"There is not much development in Maninagar and many are afraid to speak the truth," said Bhatt, adding that her fight was ideological.
She said her defeat would have no effect on the couple`s campaign against Modi.
"I`ll continue to be in politics and keep fighting against Modi. I have always fought against injustice and fear and will continue to do so," she said.
