Vadodara City Bye Elections

The major parties in Gujarat, BJP and Congress, are making their strategies for the by-polls to be held in Vadodara on September 13. Congress nominated Narendra Rawat to contest Vadodara seat. BJP is yet to announce the name of its candidate. PM Narendra Modi who won the Lok Sabha elections from both Varanasi and Vadodara, resigned from Vadodara, thus necessitating the by-polls.

For BJP it is not only a power play but also the fight for party reputation to retain the seat. On the other hand, the Congress will try to win the seat to boost the declining morale of the party members.
