Why is it difficult for Congress leader Paresh Dhanani to win Amreli for the fourth time, this is the reason

Gujarat Election 2022: Voting for 182 assembly seats in Gujarat will be held on December 1 for the first phase and on December 5 for the second phase. While the election results will come on December 8. Paresh Dhanani is the third time MLA from Congress from Amreli assembly seat. But this time it may be difficult for Paresh Dhanani to win the election from Amreli. Especially when the movement for Patidar reservation has faded.  

Paresh Dhanani is facing challenges from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidate. AAP’s contest from Amreli is expected to dent the traditional vote bank of the Congress. Paresh Dhanani is a prominent leader of the Gujarat Congress, he has been the former leader of the opposition in the state assembly. 

Patidar leader in front of Dhanani
The Bharatiya Janata Party has fielded its district president Kaushik Vekaria from Amreli, while the Aam Aadmi Party has given ticket to Ravi Dhanani from here. Actually, all the three candidates from Amreli come from the Patidar community. Patidars constitute more than half of the voters in this assembly.

Whereas, as soon as one enters the Amreli assembly, huge hoardings of Paresh Dhanani are seen on every major road here, the hoardings have been shown advertising the works done by him in the constituency. At the same time, his supporters say that if the Congress had got a majority in 2017, he would have become the Chief Minister.

Amreli has always shown the way to Gujarat…
Let us tell you that in 2017, Congress came close to the majority figure by contesting respectable elections in front of BJP. But the government could not be formed. Dhanani said in a statement, "This election is a fight between the arrogant rulers and the people of Gujarat. Amreli has always shown the way to Gujarat and this time also they will elect me and bring change after 27 years of BJP misrule." The Congress is making every effort to return to power after 27 years in this assembly election.

Paresh Dhanani is known for roaming in his city on a two-wheeler. They are even seen making and drinking tea at roadside stalls in the city. Paresh Dhanani has been the Leader of the Opposition in the Gujarat State Legislative Assembly. Dhanani has won from Amreli seat in 2002, 2012 and 2017 and is now preparing to win for the fourth time from here.
