Shankersinh Vaghela joins new front, to contest all Gujarat seats

Shankersinh Vaghela

The former RSS pracharak, who recently had a fallout with the Congress over the issue of nominating him as the party's CM candidate, said: "Jan Vikalp is a group of volunteers and professionals who approached me to provide an alternative to the ruling BJP and Opposition Congress". It has not been registered as a political party.

The new front will support independent candidates who register with it for the upcoming state assembly elections, he said. A large number of people said I should be the next chief minister.

This development comes just days after Vaghela's supporters passed a resolution urging him to become active "in order to ease the pains of people of Gujarat who are facing many problems at present". "Quite unlike the USA, where primaries at the local level elect the presidential candidate, and the process runs for full one year, here even candidates who want to fight assembly polls are decided by the High Command". "People associated with the Jan Vikalp were insistent in seeking my support, so I made a decision to support them", Vaghela said.

Life has come full circle for Shankersinh Vaghela, as he has launched a new political party in Gujarat. This year, he quit from Congress as well and now he has realized his dream of forming his own party. "They had negotiated with the BJP for quite some time".

Later, during the election to the upper house where Congress bigwig Ahmed Patel was the official candidate, eight others, including Vaghela, cross-voted for BJP candidates. In all, 14 lawmakers including him quit the party. "I will consult you (the media) if a such situation arises", Mr Vaghela said. The Jan Vikalp campaign states that people want to have options other than the BJP and the Congress in the state. They asked me to lead this third front.

"I have chose to support the campaign of Jan Vikalp but I won't criticise individuals such as Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi but criticise their political parties", he announced in Gandhinagar on Tuesday.
