Bric a Brac : Vaghela taking stock?

rahul in a fix

Vaghela-taking-stockNarendra Modi and his political aide Amit Shah, the master blasters of the politics of check­mate, are learnt to have finalised plans for their Gujarat sweep. Indications from Gujarat are that the polls in the State may be advanced and held before the tenure of the current government is over. Sources say many top Congress leaders are making a beeline for the saffron party. The grapevine has it that stalwart state Congress leader Shankersinh Vaghela is extremely upset with the party, and not only refuses to attend any party rally or function, but he did not even meet Rahul Gandhi when the latter visited the state recently. Apparently, then Rahul took the initiative to meet Vaghela. During the tête-à-tête, Vaghela is said to have put some tough demands to Rahul. The first is he should be made the party’s face in the next state polls; and, second, that he should be given complete freedom in ticket distribution for at least 100 seats. Rahul clearly said that the party would not declare anyone as CM ­designate. Vaghela, in the meanwhile, has been in constant touch with Amit Shah through a Mumbai businessman. Apart from this, Vaghela is still friendly with Narendra Modi. Besides, the BJP is also in conversation with two scions of former Congress biggies: Tushar, son of late Amarsinh Chaudhary, and Bharatsinh Solanki, son of Madhavsinh Solanki, and they may join the saffron camp any day.gfiles end logo
