Amid the ongoing speculation about the rift in Gujarat Congress, state party chief Amit Chavda on Wednesday called out Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and stated that Rupani should worry about his chair and Gujarat instead of worrying about Congress.

While interacting with a media agency, Chavda said, "neither their lawmakers nor the people in Gujarat trust the BJP or its government in the state. Instead of worrying about Congress, Rupani Ji should worry about his chair. He should worry about the farmers and common people in Gujarat."

"The law and order condition in the state is in the worst condition. The government should focus on fulfilling its responsibilities considering the mandate the people gave given," he added.

Rejecting the reports claiming rift in Congress, Chavda said that the BJP should focus on their party rather than propagating false accusations.
