Not counting the bypoll victory, Amin lost four Assembly elections since 1995, but had always managed to secure a Congress ticket for himself — until this time. It was this denial that led to his defection. Amin was, in fact, a strategist in decisions concerning allocation of party tickets to candidates for civic elections in Gujarat.
Amin runs five educational institutions under the Jan Sahyak Trust (Hiramani Educational Complex) on Sarkhej-Gandhinagar Highway.
His elder brother, Ghanshyam Amin, is with the Congress and a veteran cooperatives leader in Gujarat. He says he will not follow Narhari into the BJP but felt that the Congress leadership had made the criteria tight with the objective of ensuring Narhari would not qualify for a ticket. "They feared that if the Congress came to power, Narhari would stake claim to the post of CM, so they pre-empted this," he said.
