Vadodara, Mar 16: Setback suffered by BJP in various elections across the country is the indication of "impending" defeat of the saffron party in Gujarat in next year's Assembly polls, AICC general secretary Gurudas Kamat said here today.
"BJP government is on its way out in the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. BJP has suffered a string of humiliating defeats in local body polls in Rajasthan, Assembly elections in Bihar and earlier in Delhi," Kamat said.
He said these setbacks will act like "stepping stones" for the Congress' victory in Gujarat and impending defeat of the ruling party.
The former MP and state Congress president Bharat Solanki today interacted with newly-elected presidents and other office-bearers of six district panchayats of Central Gujarat. Local BJP leader Udesinh Bariya and former BJP corporator in Vadodara Municipal Corporation Ashok Pawar joined Congress in presence of Kamat.
