Cong releases candidate list for B

Ahmedabad: After releasing the first list of candidates for 10 wards of the Bhavnagar Municipal Corporation (BMC), the Congress party declared another list on Friday that includes 24 more candidates.

The party has announced names of 45 candidates for BMC, so far.

Meanwhile, till late evening on Friday, the party held back on announcing its list of candidates for the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) wards.

It is to be noted that Saturday is the last day for filing nomination forms. Since, the party is facing a revolt from its workers, it may be taking time to declare the final list.

While the names of seven candidates are still being kept under wraps by the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC), many names are being discussed among activists.

Meanwhile, party chief spokesperson Manish Doshi alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had roped in people to influence certain official decisions.

“The BJP had fielded two candidates for the corporation election who are part of the Fees Regulatory Committee. Jainik Vakil (Ahmedabad) and Keyur Rokadia (Vadodara) are candidates who decide on the fee structure of private schools,” he said.

He further stated that both of them were favoured by private school administrators. “The fees were hiked and the parents’ union successfully rolled back it. The BJP must answer whether they are concerned for the public or school managements?” he questioned. (First India Bureau)
