Asserting that the BJP is on a strong footing in Gujarat, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity and policies have shrunk the opposition space in the state and in that limited space some may choose the AAP over the Congress in the next assembly polls.

Underlining that the state’s finances are in good shape, Patel said in the long run the AAP’s culture of freebies is not good for the state and society as well.

Interacting with a select group of journalists, Patel said the BJP is in a strong position in the state and is continuously engaging with the people.

When asked about the prospects of the AAP in Gujarat Assembly polls, Patel said, "See in democracy every party has the right to contest elections. But please understand that the BJP is functioning consistently with the same intensity, engaging with people and staying with them.
