Fort Amethi!

August 08 2017

For the Modi-Shah duo, a Congress-free India is not merely a slogan. They are hell bent on implementing it, that is clear. After ambushing Congress biggie Ahmed Patel on the Rajya Sabha poll from Gujarat, they are now training their guns on getting Rahul Gandhi done in the Amethi-Raebareli constituency, considered the fief of the Congress. In the 2014 polls, BJP’s Smriti Irani had posed a serious challenge to RaGa in Amethi. This time around, the machinations within the BJP is to find a Fifth Columnist from within the Congress to take on the Prince on his home turf. A while ago, the BJP mandarins had commissioned a famous agency to undertake a secret survey. The results show that if the elections are held today, the BJP is likely to bag some 54 seats, about 20 less than what it had scored in 2014. But the BJP is still buoyant because it seems that in terms of vote share, it is still ahead of the Congress. The reports say that in Amethi, the BJP will pip the Congress to the post by 17 per cent votes. No doubt, if the survey report is correct, it spells doom for the Congress lad.
