New Delhi: A day before Gujarat undergoes its first phase of polling, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Amit Shah stated Wednesday that the Congress party is “still the main opposition party” for the saffron party.
According to the news agency PTI, Amit Shah stated that the grand-old party is experiencing a crisis across the country, the impact of which is visible to all.
The Union Minister also mentioned the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which claims to win the upcoming state elections. Shah asked to wait for the Gujarat election results and said the “AAP’s name may not figure in winning candidates’ list.”
