Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Lok Sabha and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday created quite a furore with his speech. After his, "You are not Hindus," remark aimed at the BJP stirred up instant protests in the House, the Congress leader also challenged the BJP and said that the INDIA bloc will surely defeat the BJP in Gujarat.

"Take it from me in writing, the INDIA bloc will defeat the BJP in Gujarat this time," thundered Rahul Gandhi in the parliament.

"I faced 20+ cases, a 2-year jail sentence, my house being taken away, relentless attacks in the media and 55 hours of interrogation by the ED. When there's an attack like this, you need refuge or ideas that defend you.  Shiva was our refuge! He gave the entire opposition the strength to fearlessly take on any onslaught and defend the idea of India," Rahul said in his unrelenting attack at the ruling BJP during his Lok Sabha speech, looking to weaken BJP's strongest narrative - Hindutva - through his speech in the Parliament.

Gujarat: BJP Bastion

Gujarat has long been a BJP bastion as the party has won in the state for seven consecutive times. BJP has ruled in Gujarat for 30 years now, becoming only the second party after the Left in Kolkata to rule in a state for 30 years of more.

Though the Congress had done well in the 2017 assembly elections as the BJP had narrowly managed to form government in the state, the BJP decemated the Congress party in the last assembly elections in Gujarat in 2022 as it won 156 seats in the 182 members house and the Congress could win only 17 seats.
