Former GPCC President Bharatsinh Solanki referred to AAP as the “opponents” of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and said that AAP had disrespected Gujarat and the nation.
The Gujarat Congress launched a “charge sheet” against the “misrule” of the BJP administration on Sunday and disclaimed any interest in forming a coalition with the Aam Aadmi Party in the impending Assembly elections.
Former president of the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC), Bharatsinh Solanki, referred to the AAP as the “opponents” of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, saying, “During Udaipur Chintan Sankalp, where I was a part of the political affair committee, we decided that Congress will work with like-minded parties. This is only a generalization, but the AAP is a party that speaks about its interests hidden under the cheating and benefits of others.
No alliance of any kind will exist with them. Gandhiji’s image has been taken down from Punjabi government buildings. They have denigrated both Gujarat and the nation. Instead of Sardar Patel, who united the whole nation, they would split with the help of the Khalistanvadi people. Gujarat cannot have a location for such a celebration, he said.
While releasing the “charge sheet” against the BJP government, Solanki addressed the media and listed 21 concerns, including economic mismanagement, rising state debt, unemployment, crony capitalism, mismanagement of the Covid-19 outbreak, and deteriorating conditions for women, among others.
The BJP-led administration neither hires nor educates teachers. No government schools have been created under the BJP administration. On the other hand, the BJP administration has closed more than 6,500 schools. Gujarat’s government-run hospitals and medical schools were all constructed under the Congress-led administration. Health and education have been privatized by the BJP administration. There are just 10 government colleges among the state’s 31 medical schools, nine of which were established by Congress. “The accomplishments of the BJP’s 27 years of misrule include the commercialization of education, insecurity of women, inflation, and unemployment,” Solanki remarked.
Alok Sharma, the national spokesman, who was present for the news conference, stated: “If the BJP had built Gujarat in 27 years, 32% of the population would not have been living in poverty. In Gujarat, 22 files were leaked in the previous five to six years. In Gujarat, there were roughly 2 lakh educated jobless people 20 years ago, but there is now 40 lakh. On the other side, Gujarat still has 92 bridges that are in a perilous state.
The Congress party is hoping to boost the voting percentage this time, which will undoubtedly enhance Congress vote share, in addition to a “careful” selection of candidates, according to Solanki.
