Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017


The Gujarat Assembly elections are being fought very keenly not only for the win but also for impressing upon the minds of Indians about who will win the parliament elections. Gujarat election is the small battle that needs to be won for winning the war of the Indian Parliament.

Everyone is watching the elections with a hawk’s eye as they want to know whether Prime Minister Modi has lost the confidence of the people or not. If Modi wins these elections then nothing can stop him from being elected as PM for another five years. Some feel he may even advance the elections to benefit from this good mood. A lot may change based on the results of the Gujarat Elections.
