article points out the BJP shouldn’t normally have any worries about election results in Gujarat It is Narendra Modi’s home state and the party has been in power there for more than two decades But the BJP has surely noticed that its ‘vikas’ narrative in Gujarat has become weak because the people themselves are not too happy about the development in the state In fact the party’sSaurashtra region spokesperson Raju Dhruv himselfadmitted to PTI that many projects which the saffron party had promised are still incomplete This is probably why the BJP has resorted to the anti-Congress plank Like the time itsnational spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao tweeted thatRahul Gandhi has "teamed up with (Asaduddin) Owaisis (Zafaryab) Jilanis" to oppose the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya beforecalling the Congress vice-president a "Babar bhakt" In fact Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself has called Congress’ process of electing its party president ‘Aurangzeb Raj’ during an election rally in Valsad Not unexpectedly BJP is flashing its old trump card communalism to boost its morale and rally its supporters Hence the posters about the battle being between RAM — (Vijay) Rupani Amit Shah and Modi — and HAJ — Hardik Patel Alpesh Thakor and Jignesh Mewani However Congress is not far behind The party’s online magazine Yuva Desh had tweeted out a meme mocking Modi’s past as a tea-seller Perhaps the most harmful remark bythe Congress came when Mani Shankar Aiyar called the prime minister a "neech aadmi"(despicable person) but apologised later when Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the Congress party does not endorse such language and expected Aiyar to apologise The damage was already done however withModi making this a caste issue by claiming that Aiyar was referring to his caste as ‘neech’ And if there was a RAM-HAJ poster by the BJP there was another one supporting Congress appealing Muslims to vote for Congress to make Ahmed Patel the "wazir-e-aalam" of Gujarat With

across the net (Source: AP) Top News Some might see Serena Williams’s absence from Wimbledon as a boost to their own chances of success but Jelena Ostapenko cannot wait for her “all-time idol” to come back to the circuit following her maternity break Over the past three years the 20-year-old has achieved many life-time goals such as winning the junior title at Wimbledon in 2014 and catching the sporting world by surprise when she hoisted the French Open trophy earlier this month while ranked 47th in the world There is one burning ambition she has yet to fulfil though — facing the most successful professional-era tennis champion across the net Williams the holder of 23 grand slam singles titles will be unable to defend her All England Club title over the next fortnight as she awaits the birth of her first baby While other rivals might be looking to capitalise on the 35-year-old champion’s absence Ostapenko thinks otherwise “It’s also nice when she was playing as she’s a great champion and she is always inspiring a lot of players” the fast-talking Latvian told Reuters in an interview in the run-up to the grasscourt major “She was always my idol when I was growing up as I would always watch her matches and really love the way she plays She’s the greatest player and maybe our styles of play is quite similar I hope I can still play her one day” Ostapenko was just two when Williams began her grand slam winning spree at the 1999 US Open and over the last two decades the American is the only woman to have achieved a feat the Latvian is now targeting – the French Open-Wimbledon double in the same year To do that she has been fine-tuning her game that usually relies on three things – power speed and even more speed “On grass you have to serve a little bit better than on clay that’s more important And the return So I have worked on my serve and return these past two weeks” said the Riga-born player who is determined to improve on her 2016 first round exit at Wimbledon Much was made of her tactics at the French Open where she belted the yellow ball out of shape – each and every time she made contact That ploy not only left a string of opponents gasping it also earned her almost as many unforced errors (271) as cleanly hit winners (299) over the course of seven matches in Paris With most of the damage done by her firecracker forehand where her average speed clocked faster than men’s world number one Andy Murray it is little wonder that when asked if she admired another player’s shot she was quick to share her thoughts “I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got but I really love the forehand of (Juan Martin) del Potro It’s very fast and very hard” said Ostapenko who is also known as an accomplished ballroom dancer in her homeland Should she triumph on Centre Court on July 15 will she be eager to show off her quickstep moves on the dance floor at the glitzy Champions’ Ball held at the end of the tournament “No I think it would be a slow waltz For the Wimbledon ball it fits the best All the players turn up in long dresses so the waltz will go well with the outfits” she giggled Any preference about whom she would like to share
