    Gujarat elections: 'Fake' poster urges Muslims to support Ahmed Patel for CM post

    The poster, written in Gujarati urges Muslims to support Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel to be made 'Wazir-e-Alam' of Gujarat. Ahmed Patel, who is also political secretary to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, called it 'misinformation campaign by the BJP', reports ANI.

    "They (BJP) know they are going to lose. I was never the CM candidate and neither will I ever be," said Ahmed Patel.

    Patel tweeted, "The moot issue is that BJP is trying very very hard to divert the narrative from its performance of last 22 years to a divisive agenda. Hence their reliance on lies & propaganda. But people of Gujarat have made up their mind this time."
