Gujarat Elections 2017: In Patidar-dominated Amreli, farm issues take centre-stage 4.12.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The Patidar-dominated Amreli is gearing up for a fight between two strong Patel candidates in the assembly segment, where farm issues are dominating the campaign discourse. Sitting Congress MLA Paresh Dhanani is pitted against BJP heavyweight Bavkubhai Undhad, the legislator from the nearby Lathi seat who has been fielded from Amreli this time. There is a talk in political circles here that Dhanani could emerge as a strong contender for the chief minister's post if he retains his seat and the Congress dislodges the BJP from power in Gandhinagar. Dhanani, 41, is considered close to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi and had accompanied the latter during his campaign tours. In the 2012 Assembly elections, Dhanani had registered a resounding victory - he won by a margin of more than 18 per cent votes over his nearest rival Dilip Sanghavi, a senior BJP leader and prominent cooperative leader. The most important issue in this agriculture-dominated constituency, known for cotton cultivation, is farm ...
