After the BJP’s win in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, party chief is now eyeing the upcoming polls in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, Hindustan Times reported.

The two states go to polls in November-December this year.

Gujarat has been under BJP rule for the last 19 years. However, the party failed to make a mark in last year’s panchayat elections. Additionally, the party is also facing the heat over the reports of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and patidar leader Hardik Patel making their foray into Gujarat. The Aam Aadmi Party’s entry will result in a three-way fight in the state.

The Congress-ruled Himachal Pradesh, too, will go to polls this year. Congress knocked the BJP out five years ago, so the Modi-Shah duo will be leaving no stone unturned to reverse the outcome, in order to achieve their mission of a ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’
