Buoyed up by a joy of winning the Mansa assembly by-election in Gujarat, the congress Party has begun waging virtually a psychological warfare against its rival the Modi led BJP in the state.
As if on elections winning spree, the congress party has had a cakewalk in a recent poll for Gujarat’s Junagarh district Cooperative Bank. The congress annexed 17 out of 22 seats on the board of directors.
The coming of this electoral triumph on the heels of the party’s win in the Mansa by-election has demoralized its opponent the BJP.
That the popular support for the BJP is fraying around the edges is evident from the fact that the party could manage to get a mere seven seats on the board of the district cooperative bank.
Some analysts, however, have blamed the BJP’s defeat on narrow considerations that swayed the cooperationists. The BJP led board of the bank had shown a good performance, they said.
