Boosted by the BJP victory in the civic polls in Uttar Pradesh and the upturn in the nation's economic growth, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today suggested a repeat in assembly polls in Gujarat where his party, the BJP, has ruled for 22 straight years. "We saw what happened there in the local elections. Congress was wiped out. UP knows the Congress well and so does Gujarat," PM Modi said at a rally in Bharuch. The BJP had won 28 of South Gujarat's 35 seats in 2012. The Congress, which won six, is hoping to make major gains in the area after it came to an understanding with Hardik Patel, the face of Patidar agitation.
