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.

By 2026, Rotarians under the leadership of the Rotary Club of Millennium City (RCMC) have committed to eradicating thalassemia in Navi Mumbai, and a campaign has already begun with a number of institutions. End Thalassemia Now 2026 is the drive’s tagline. The DY Patil Hospital in Nerul is supporting a plan to establish a thalassemia facility. Along with the hospital managed by the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) and the RCMC in Vashi since 2012, this facility is an addition. More than 50 children with thalassemia are receiving care at the RCMC as part of the “End Thalassemia Now 2026” initiative. With the addition of the new facility, the club will be able to meet the needs of more than 100 of these kids.

By August 15, the new facility with DY Patil Hospital is expected to open. According to a Rotarian, RCMC and other Rotary clubs in Navi Mumbai are working to eradicate thalassemia through the “End Thalassemia Now” project. Rotarian Diwakar Kallianpur, who assumed leadership of the RCMC club for 2023–24, proposed the initiative, which Rotarian Jitendra Jadhwani, the project’s chair, endorsed. “RCMC has been developed and put into action with the goal of eliminating thalassemia within the next three years, according to three basic goals: care, awareness, and prevention. It is a plague that can be avoided and handled, so long as all significant social actors band together to forward the project, according to Kallianpur.

“Thalassemia is painful to manage, but there is a bright side to this condition,” said Jadhwani. As long as people in the community are informed, it can be fully avoided. Major and mild forms of thalassemia exist. People with small variations lead nearly typical lives, although they must exercise caution when choosing a spouse. They ought to abstain from getting married to a minor with thalassemia. Due to the possibility that the infant may have significant thalassemia, this might cause problems at birth. A hereditary condition called thalassaemia can have an effect on a newborn. Such children need blood transfusions for the rest of their lives.

The youngster must take lifetime iron-removal medications as a result of these ongoing monthly transfusions. The difficulties associated with thalassemia in children are many, and they also run the risk of essential organ failure, including as heart and kidney failure. Thalassemia is a characteristic that affects 2% of people worldwide.
