Though both BJP and the Congress are yet to declare the lists of their candidates for the upcoming Assembly polls, their probable candidates from Waghodia constituency are already challenging each other for a fight, politically or otherwise.
BJP MLA from Waghodia constituency, Madhu Srivastava, and Jayesh Patel, the chairman of Parul Group of Institutes who is seeking a Congress ticket from the same constituency, threatened each other a day after Patel filed an FIR against Srivastava's son Deepak for allegedly threatening his people when they were distributing sarees in a village in Waghodia in memory of his late father.
While Srivastava said saree distribution was a violation of model code of conduct, Patel denied the charge saying he was not even declared a Congress candidate as yet. Patel was the Congress candidate in the 2007 Assembly polls and had lost to Srivastava. He is likely to get a Congress ticket from the same constituency again.
"If you (Patel) are ready to fight, I am also ready, both politically and otherwise...," Srivastava told mediapersons soon after securing bail for his son who surrendered at Waghodia police station.
Patel responded in kind. "Srivastava has been threatening villagers and Congress workers. He does not usually come before me, but if he does, I will confront his sword with revolver. This is certain," Patel said.
