The Gujarat Assembly elections are turning out to be quite interesting. Rivaba Jadeja, wife of India's cricketer Ravindra Jadeja, is one of the eminent candidates contesting the election. She has contested for Jamnagar North on a BJP ticket. Ravindra Jadeja himself actively participated in the election campaign of his wife. Now the statement of her sister-in-law i.e. Ravindra Jadeja's sister Naina Jadeja has also come on Rivaba, contesting elections for the BJP. Actually, this statement is also interesting in itself, because Naina had campaigned for the Congress candidate this time.
Naina Jadeja's Remark
When Ravindra Jadeja's sister was asked about her sister-in-law Rivaba contesting for the BJP, she said, "This is not the first time that people from the same family are representing different parties. It has happened in Jamnagar earlier as well, when members of the same family worked for different parties. We have to be satisfied with our ideology and give our 100 per cent, whoever is better will win." When Naina was further asked about her sister-in-law Rivaba, she said, "My love for my brother is still the same. My sister-in-law is now a BJP candidate. She is good as a sister-in-law."
Earlier, Rivaba Jadeja also cast her vote in Rajkot today. During this time, she also gave a statement on the support of different parties in the family. She said, "It is not happening for the first time in politics that people from the same family are associated with different parties. I have faith in the people of Jamnagar, we will focus on overall development and this time also, BJP will win by a good margin."
Ravindra Jadeja and Bal Thackeray
Cricketer Ravindra Jadeja has shared an old video of Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray ahead of the voting for the first phase of Gujarat elections today.

A few hours before the start of polling today, Jadeja released this old video of Balasaheb appealing to his wife and BJP to win. Along with releasing Thackeray's video, Jadeja told the voters, "Abhi bhi time hai samaj jao Gujaratiyo. Ek Sher ki Baat Suno."
