Jamnagar - Muslims prefer BJP in Sikka

Congress claims that it has an added advantage against BJP's Hindu agenda, It feels muslims will favour them (as it happened in 2002).
 
How true is this, Everyone is benefited by economic prosperity in Gujarat, and muslims in Sikka ( Jamnagar District) has clearly tilted the scales in favour of Modi.
Note that thic town has 70% Muslims and almost every one is supporting BJP, more then this out of 19 seat in Sikka municipalty all seats are with BJP, 14 of them are muslims. Reliance and IOC has their base in this area, clearly economic freedom has wiped out images of 2002 riots here.
 
Cashing on this example, BJP wants to market this model across the state, but this will not be so easy,
 
Congress on the other hand started appealing Urban Muslims to vote in plenty, which congress missed to appeal in 2002 elections.

Jamnagar - Dhrol the image continues

Jamnagar - Dhrol the image continues

Superstitions are well alive in political world, when every effort fails superstition takes its turn.

Dhrol is always known the infamous "Samu Gaam" (Village on the opposite side) for Jamnagari's, people here do not name the town, they think its not so good feeling to utter the name of this town (Like You-Know-Who ??).

Dhrol town has earned a notorious superstitious reputation, even in political areas. Today nobody wants to campaign at Dhrol, guess -  it is supposed to be unlucky.

Locals says that in 1975, Indira Gandhi imposed emergency just after addressing a rally in Dhrol.
Later in 1985 CM Madhavsinh Solanki addressed a rally , and soon he had to make way for Amarsinh Chaudhary.

Modern day election campaing are wrapped up in Superstitions, right from timing of nomination filing, campaing kick off everything is drived by prospourous timings / Muhurta.

BJP has gone beyond beliefs, relocating offices to meet needs of Vastu Shahstra.

Let's see how Dec 23 treats the astologers.

Jamnagar - Ranjit Nagar road in worst condition

Jamnagar - Ranjit Nagar main road to Pavan chakki is in worst condition, see news...
 
આ રસ્તામાં પડી ગયેલા મોટા-મોટા ખાડાઓ જામપા દ્વારા માટી નાખી પુરવામાં આવ્યા હતા. જામનગરથી લાલપુર જતા મોટા વાહનો પણ પવનચક્કીથી રજીતસાગર રોડ પર થઈને પસાર થાય છે. આ મોટા વાહનો જયારે આ રોડ પરથી પસાર થાય છે ત્યારે ખાડામાં નાખવામાં આવેલી માટીની ડમરીઓ ઉડયા કરે છે.
 
ધુળની ડમરીઓ ઉડતા આ રસ્તા પરથી વાહન ચાલકોકે રાહદારીઓ પસાર થઈ શકતા નથી. આ રસ્તાઓને જોતા લાગે છે કે આ રસ્તા કરતા ગામડાનો ગાડા માર્ગ સારો હોય શકે.
