In an attempt to put pressure on the Congress party in Gujarat, MLA from Jhagadia constituency and Bharatiya Tribal Party (BTP) leader Chhotu Vasava has proclaimed to contest for 7 Lok Sabha seats in Gujarat including Bharuch.
Bharuch is the home constituency of Congress leader Ahmed Patel. This move by Vasava is deemed as a ploy ahead of the Congress party in the Gujarat state to field their candidates.
Chhotu Vasava is a 7-time MLA who formed the BTP just a month before 2017 assembly elections. In 2017 he had contested for two seats along with the Congress.
The BTP in 2017 had won two seats in Rajasthan.
