Gujarat Assembly election 2022: EX-IPS officer DG Vanzara launches 'Hindutva'-based political party- PVP

WHAT?

Former IPS officer DG Vanzara on Tuesday launched a political party- ‘Praja Vijay Party’ (PVP) based on "Hindutva" ideology.

WHEN?

The controversial Ex-IPS official said his party will contest the next month's Assembly elections in Gujarat.

The PVP will contest all 182 seats in the two-phase polls scheduled on December 1 and 5, but it is not clear whether Vanzara will enter the poll fray.

WHO?

Vanzara, a former "encounter specialist", was acquitted in the alleged fake encounter case of Sohrabuddin Shaikh and Tulsiram Prajapati and discharged in the Ishrat Jahan alleged fake encounter case.

He said had Congress been an alternative, there would not have been a single-party (BJP) rule in the state for the last 27 years.

"Even the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) cannot become an option for people in Gujarat who want an alternative to the BJP," Vanzara said.
