Bharatiya Janata Party Gandhinagar, April 8 (IANS) Suresh Patel, the Congress candidate for Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat said Wednesday that his close interaction with people of the constituency for many years would prove to be an asset while contesting against senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani.
‘I am a local person and people of the Gandhinagar constituency believe in me and my work,” Patel said coming out of the Gandhinagar district collectorate after filing his nomination minutes before Advani arrived to file his nomination.

He said that on one side the BJP talks about construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya and on the other hand its government in Gujarat went about demolishing about 100 small and big temples in a demolition drive.

More than 100 supporters of Patel gathered outside the district collectorate to greet Patel.
