GPP withdraws Maninagar candidate, now its Modi Vs Shweta Bhatt Zeenews Bureau

Ahmedabad: Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP) led by Keshubhai Patel on Monday withdrew its candidate expressing solidarity to Congress candidate from the Maninagar seat Shweta Bhatt, the wife of suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, who is contesting the election against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

The GPP pulled its candidate back a day after Shewta appealed to all political parties to withdraw its candidates in order to make her electoral battle against Modi easier.

"I appeal to all the political parties which oppose BJP to support me in my political battle against the Gujarat Chief Minister... I appeal especially to GPP Chief Keshubhai Patel to withdraw his candidate," Bhatt told reporters yesterday.

The Maninagar constituency is considered to be a BJP stronghold.

In her maiden press conference, Shweta Bhatt said, "I am not fighting this political battle for myself alone ... I am fighting it on behalf of entire Gujarat, so those who have faith in the Constitution and democracy... political outfits and individuals should support me."

"I am a very new entrant into politics... I have come with a true heart, to speak the truth, and want to do something," she said.

Asked what would be her response if Keshubhai Patel made a counter appeal, Bhatt said, "So far no such appeal has been made from GPP. If it comes, we would see."

Replying to a query about complaint filed in a Lucknow court that her husband violated service rules by accompanying her to file nomination, Bhatt said, "I am an Indian woman and would expect my husband to support me in my endeavours. He came to extend moral support to his wife."

Narendra Modi will spend sleepless night hence forth as perhaps he now should believe that his days are numbered in view of recent Tahelka expose of Gas deal with a foreign company in which Govt has lost Rs 20000 crore of Tax payer`s money accused by Congress recently

Shweta may be a novice in politics, but her first game plan has worked. GPP has withdrawn its candidate. Congress has proved that the party cannot be taken for granted. It remained silent for years, but no more. Gujarat needs change, and Congress is the only party who can bring that change.
