“BJP is in power for decades in Gujarat. Congress also ruled the state for 30 years. I’m unable to find development here (in Gujarat). I’m calling, development, where are you? And I’m getting an answer that there is no development but Jumla (rhetoric). They received votes from all but you can see what happened here,” he said.

Responding to Pathan’s charges, Thakor, said he believes there was no bigger enemy of Muslims than AIMIM.

“AIMIM supports extremism and provokes people, on the other hand, BJP does not speak like this but presses nationalism. Today, every home in the state is getting water. I’ll quit politics if you find a house that is not getting water. Muslims in Gujarat are not going to be influenced by AIMIM,” he asserted.

Vote for Legislative Assembly election is scheduled to be held on 1 and 5 December 2022 in two phases, to elect 182 members of 15th assembly. The counting of votes will take place on December 8, 2022.
