Gandhinagar, March 2 : Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Tuesday said that the people of the state have wiped out the Congress and reduced it to a level where it is not even considered fit to be in the Opposition.
He was addressing the media at the state BJP headquarters in ‘Shri Kamalam’ here, where the party on Tuesday celebrated its impending victory in the local body elections.
As per the results received for all the municipalities till 6 p.m. on Tuesday, BJP captured 2,027 seats, followed by Congress (375), Independents (168), Aam Aadmi Party (9), Bahujan Samajwadi Party (6), and others (24).
