Gujarat assembly elections 2017 is perhaps one of the most heated up political events that is knocking at the door. Both the ruling and the opposition have up the ante in the run up to the contest.

BJP’s firebrand politician and CM of Uttar Pradesh (UP) Yogi Adityanath said that BJP will have an easy victory in the Gujarat polls and will claim more than 150 seats.

While speaking to news agency ANI Yogi said, “Easy target for BJP as development and infrastructure work done here is a symbol of trust. The UP CM praised the speed with which the development activities have been executed.

"In the last 20 years, per capita income in Gujarat has risen up to 10 times from Rs.14,000 to Rs.1,41,000, he added.

Yogi said that Gujarat is the highest among employment generation and the model of development is capable of being replicated by other developing states in India.

Congress Vice President (VP) Rahul Gandhi should come out of his childish acts that fetch cheap publicity said Adityanath.

On the issue of Ram Mandir being one of the election campaign the UP CM said that it is not an election issue but an issue of faith.
