Mehsana, a big factor in Gujarat politics
By J P Gupta
Mehsana, Gujarat, Nov 9 (UNI) The home district of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and also the epicentre of the Patidar quota agitation -Mehsana- has become the testing ground for the BJP and the Congress, vying for power in the two-phase Gujarat Assembly polls scheduled next month.
Billed as one of the most important tests for the BJP before the general elections in 2019, the stakes are high for the party in this Assembly poll. âThe BJP must either win the Patidar heart or break up their movement," local BJP leaders say.
