Strong BJP performance, declining Cong, and positive student perception of AAP



Saurashtra University students frequently express their support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP, but there is also a continual hum of concerns about unemployment, test paper leaks, and price hikes.

Many students claim that the BJP has brought “vikas” by upgrading the electricity and water infrastructure and creating roads, but some of them also cast doubt on its track record in the areas of education and health.

And some of these first-time assembly poll voters seem to have taken notice of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), rather than the Congress, who has historically been the BJP’s major foe.

Ranva Dalip, a Morbi native and first-year master’s student, says of the AAP, “AAP ka vichar achchha hai education par (AAP’s thoughts on education are good)”. He swiftly adds, though, that it will take time for the party to become well-known.

The loud campaign of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party in Delhi, which is focused on corruption and other concerns like education and health, has found some supporters on the campus of the largest institution in the area, which enrols students from all across the region’s several districts.

While many poll experts feel that the Congress is still the BJP’s main competitor in the state, the majority of these young people perceive the party to be unappealing, creating an opening for the AAP to enter the race.

Mehul Makwana, a BCA student, praises the BJP for improving facilities for state residents and declares emphatically, “Modi hi aayega” (Modi will definitely win again), unfazed by the fact that the prime minister’s position is not up for grabs in these elections and highlighting how he is seen as synonymous with his party in his home state.

There are, however, a few opposing viewpoints as well.

One student claims that the state administration responded to the Morbi bridge collapse disaster slowly because Delhi has “control,” while another claims that while Modi has done a lot of wonderful things for the nation and the state, he hasn’t been able to stop the rise in prices.

A master’s student named Kachhot Kaushik claims that higher education has gotten pricey and expresses support for Kejriwal’s pledge of free power, health care, and education.

According to him, the regional party’s leadership in Delhi and Punjab has received positive reviews.

The state has seen a few incidences of question paper leaks, which is a common issue. Some students also criticise the Gujarat government of failing to provide adequate work chances for them.

Even though the BJP looks to be maintaining a strong presence, the AAP seems to have been able to leave an effect on the young minds dissatisfied with the ruling party for a variety of reasons with its aggressive and visible campaign.

The Issue

While most commuters get off the subway facing the Vashi station’s Raghu Leela side, a sizable portion of travelers also use the station’s eastern side to get towards Sanpada. The neglected state of the outlying lands outside the station on this side has drawn the attention of locals and commuters alike.

Several complaints have been made by commuters, who list numerous problems with the area. Under all that debris, they noticed that wiring and plastic tubing were left unsecured, and there was a pedestrian bench.

A daily commuter stated, “Authorities have turned a blind eye to this problem even though it’s right under their nose. This side does not receive heavy footfall like the other side of Vashi station does one is concerned about the aesthetics of this area.”

“My son studies at Father Agnel High School and my office is in Vashi. When we pass by this area in the morning, I have noticed slabs that have caved in; this has become a hazard for people walking here,” a Sanpada resident remarked. Additionally, there is an overabundance of bushes and plants next to a bench that was supposed to serve as sitting. A renovation is desperately needed in the area.
