A mix of veteran and old MLAs along with fresh candidates are in the fray for the assembly elections. However, seasoned MLAs are facing public outrage for inaction on critical issues. Three MLAs, Mahudha’s Indrajitsinh Parmar, Vav assembly’s Ganiben Thakor, and Khedbrahma’s Ashwin Kotwal, were involved in spats in the open. The Vibes of India gives a lowdown on why the common people have lost faith in their credentials.
He served the Congress for three terms before joining the BJP. The locals of Joravarnagar, a hamlet in Vijaynagar, which falls under the Khedbrahma constituency, questioned his efforts during the dark Covid phase and contribution to the village’s development. Kotwal responded saying he didn’t owe them an explanation.
Congress MLA Ganiben Thakor faced the heat while campaigning in the Ishvariya Village in the Vav Taluka of Banaskantha district. Thakor too was questioned for his contribution, or the lack of it, to village development. They asked her why she didn’t set foot in Ishvariya Village for five years. She responded saying that she had visited 100 villages during her tenure and was compassionate towards every hamlet.
This BJP candidate and former MLA belongs to the Jamalpur-Khadiya Assembly constituency. A social worker Ashok Vaghela led a protest, questioning his involvement in the development of temples in the area.
