BJP Releases Second List Of Candidates For Gujarat Polls

According to Bamania, the agreement was reached during a meeting between community leaders and Congress leaders including its state president Bharatsinh Solanki. Reports of friction between Hardik's party and the Congress had emerged after the latter's refusal to grant nine tickets demanded by PAAS, and instead, asking it to settle for only four.

In 2012 Gujarat Assembly Elections, Congress won 57 out of 182 seats and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) registered victory on 119 seats. Patidar community can not be cheated by Congress.

While the PAAS, led by Mr Patel, had demanded around 20 seats from the Congress, Mr Thakore, who has recently joined the Congress, has demanded 12 seats.

"Hardik Patel will make an announcement from Rajkot tomorrow", PAAS leader Dinesh Bambhaniya said.

Yesterday, the party had announced 70 candidates, including Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and state party chief Jitu Vaghani. While the Congress has released a list of 77 names, it is expected to come out with another list on Monday. The counting of votes will take place on December 18. Polling in the hilly state was held on November 9.

The saffron party has already declared its two lists of candidates for the first phase, fielding 106 candidates so far. The first phase will cover 89 constituencies in 19 districts, and the second phase 93 seats in 14 districts. "In the coming days, we will try to implement what we discussed", he said.

While the PAAS, which is driving a hard bargain with the grand old party given its hold on the numerically strong community, has demanded almost 20 seats from the Congress quota, the Other Backward Classes (OBC) group, led by Alpesh Thakor, has demanded 12.

He said that some people had started a campaign against him that he was not happy with the party high command and had left the Central Election Committee meeting halfway in New Delhi to return to Gujarat.
