AAP candidate withdraws GMC polls form to aid Cong

Gandhinagar: Ahead of the local body elections of the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC), a candidate nominated by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) from ward number 5 withdrew his candidature.

On Monday, Nishiraj Ramlavat released a video of himself declaring his support for the Congress party.

In the video, Ramlavat said that Congress candidate Brijraj Gohil, who has been nominated from the same ward, was his friend. He declared his intention to support Gohil in the election.

Another AAP candidate from ward number 5 Kumpal Dave also withdrew her candidature.

Party spokesperson Tuli Banerjee said that both Ramlavat and Dave had withdrawn their nominations under pressure.

She said Ramlavat withdrew his nomination because of pressure from the Congress party, whereas Dave backed out due to threats made by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) about getting her son fired from his job.

On the other hand, Congress party held its coordination committee meeting on Monday, where working president Hardik Patel remained absent.

Congress leader Madhusudan Mistry admitted that their efforts to convince the public to grant them the mandate were not enough.

“People did not join our programmes. We have to make necessary changes to the upcoming programmes.

The leaders have decided to win the GMC election as well as the Morva Hadaf by-election. Also, we are in the process of preparing a blueprint for the 2022 state legislative assembly elections,” said Mistry.
