Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani has claimed that the BJP will win all 26 Lok Sabha seats in the state in 2019 polls, thus repeating the 2014 general elections victory. Rupani was interacting with a group of reporters in Gandhinagar on Wednesday.

Talking about atrocities on dalits, Rupani said that the government is doing its best to protect the rights of the dalits. On the recent flogging incident he said that they are taking immediate action.
 
On May 20, a dalit ragpicker was allegedly beaten to death at a factory in Shapar village in Rajkot district on suspicion of theft. Five people have been arrested in the case.
