    Vadodara, Jul 23: Dissident BJP leader Keshubhai Patel has said his soon-to-be launched political party will be wedded into broad concept of 'Hindutva' and its goal will be to dislodge the "corrupt" Narendra Modi Government from power in Gujarat in the upcoming Assembly polls.

    "Hindutva used in liberal and broad sense" will be the ideology of the new party which will be launched next month, the former Chief Minister said. Talking to PTI during his visit to the city to address a convention organised by Mahagujarat Janata Party (MJP) yesterday, he said, "this version of Hindutva will also mean working for welfare of the Muslim community."

    Justifying the need for a new outfit in a state dominated by BJP and Congress, the veteran leader said, "I decided to form the new party eight months ago to dislodge the corrupt Modi Government from power." Modi will face a tough time in the Assembly elections slated by the year-end and "we will ensure that he loses power in the State," Patel said.

    The Modi-baiter, who celebrates his 84th birthday on Jul 24, has embarked on a mission to mobilise support for the ouster of the BJP stalwart who succeeded him as Chief Minister in 2001. He has the support of dissident BJP leaders Kashiram Rana, Suresh Mehta, a former Chief Minister and also MJP President Gordhan Zadaphia, Modi's friend-turned-foe who was Minister of State for Home during the 2002 post-Godhra riots.

    After virtually remaining in the political wilderness since 2001, the former Chief Minister has decided to contest Assembly poll from Saurashtra, a region where he enjoys good support among the influential Patel community, who constitute 18 per cent of Gujarat's population.


    =========================================================================================================

    Here comes "Liberal Hindutva" ... Congress was not enough playing Liberal Hindutva that this old hag has come to create a new one.

    btw Keshubhai turning 84 :dude: ..... buddhe ka pair kabr mein hai lekin politics khelne ka bada shauk hai.

    :dude: Liberal Hindutva was an Ideology at the time of Independence @ 1947, and so we suffered Partiton, what is the need to revive the impotency again? I can bet present Hindutva is more liberal and more tolerant than any Islamic secular ideology. Keshubhai has gone out of his mind for getting votes.

    Caste based politics will not work in Gujarat. Gujarat is well above it. People from all caste are growing together and are very inter-dependent. The Patel community favour NaMo more than Keshubhai.

    If NaMo is able to get Suzuki invested in Gujarat, it will be a landslide victory for him in this election. There are absolutely no issues to fight over in this election, except the riots. But NaMo has won elections despite of that.

    I thought Hindutwa in any form is another name for Liberal thoughts ! So what does Keshubhai want ? Why does not he join Congress who claim they are Liberals....

Today, Gujarat Congress is full of gundas. I'm not talking about any leader(though most of them are), I'm talking about Karyakarta. In general population a traditional congress supporter, supports Modi here.Because people can see the work around.And to woo these people back congress is accussing Modi for courruption charges,almost all are false but bloody Gujju media is paid before TOI.From past 10 years, I haven't seen any news which shows the development done by govt. They cleverly pushed such news with ineffective title in corner of middle pages or sometimes never print such news.But always 1 page's dedicated to bash Modi.

Keshubapa is nobody, BJP isn't taking him seriously but they shouldn't remain over confident as media has pushed congress aside and giving keshubapa full coverage though ineffective and laughable.But still BJP must start campaigning now and must go to people till the day of election.

    before drafting of constitution India was known as hindustan among locals on the basis of what mughals used to call this land. hindutva's initial meaning was pro-hindustan. if you translate it will become pro-bharat or pro-india.
    nowhere it was used to say its pro-hinduism.

    just like many other things its abused
