Ahmedabad: BJP and Congress today faced protests from disgruntled members over the selection of candidates for the Lok Sabha polls.

Congress saw opposition regarding the selection of candidates for the Ahmedabad-West (SC), Kutch (SC) and Banaskantha seats and ruling BJP in Mehsana, Dahod and Kheda.  

Both BJP and Congress have announced nominations for 21 of the total 26 seats.

After Congress nominated Ishwar Makwana for Ahmedabad-West (SC) seat, sitting party MLA from Dariyapur Gyasuddin Shaikh raised his objection.

In his representation to Gujarat Congress leaders, Shaikh claimed that Makwana is an ‘imported' candidate.
