Ahmedabad, Oct 10 (UNI) Refusing to reveal their strategy in view of the forthcoming assembly elections in Gujarat, BJP rebel leader and former chief minister Suresh Mehta said the dissidents, as of now, have chosen to adopt a ''wait and watch'' policy.

''Our final decision will be taken at appropriate time,'' Mr Mehta told reporters here today.

Mr Mehta, who was flanked by former co-operative minister Arvind Patel and suspended BJP MLA Dhiru Gajera, said the BJP dissidents are open to all options -- tendering their resignation from the party, forming a new party or joining any other political party.

Meanwhile, he alleged that the law and order situation in Gujarat has deteriorated under Narendra Modi's regime but the Chief Minister was making false claims that Gujarat is the safest place in the country and the crime rate in the state is low as compared to other states.

Without referring directly to any of the post-Godhra riot cases, Mr Mehta, however, remarked that reversal of judgements after the transfer of cases to other states has blemished the Modi Government and these were glaring examples of interference in the judiciary in Gujarat.

Mr Mehta remarked, ''Even God and places of worship are unsafe under the present regime as evidenced by the murders of 'sadhus' and looting of cash and jewellery from religious places.'' UNI
