With the legislative elections in Gujarat due to take place by the end of next year, the two rival political parties, the BJP and Congress, are sparing no efforts to court and gain support from the state’s youth. Bearing in mind the craze for youth cricket, Congress on Monday launched a tournament called the “RG Premier League” in Ahmedabad.
Keyur Shah, the organizer of the Gujarat Congress social media cell, said the state Congress held a “Rahul Gandhi Premier League” knockout tournament to attract young people.
The tournament kicked off in the presence of State Congress President Jagdish Thakor, Senior State Leader and Former State President Bharatsinh Solanki, and Congress IT Cell Coordinator Rohan Gupta. All team jerseys were also unveiled on the occasion.
More than 24 teams from the city of Ahmedabad will participate. The winner of the final match will receive a cash prize. The match will be broadcast live on social media.
Speaking on the same subject, Shah said that Congress would hold such tournaments in different districts of Gujarat Gujarat after its success in Ahmedabad.
Meanwhile, the BJP began preparations for the premiere of Gandhinagar Lok Sabha cricket. Cricket tournaments will be organized for each assembly seat in Lok Sabha. Along with this, Kabaddi is also expected. By setting up neighborhood teams, the BJP will also attract new voters by promoting the power of young people.
