The much-awaited results of the Gujarat elections are out and apart from the obvious victory of BJP (although Congress gave it a tough competition this time); the person who stood out in the entire scenario is Jignesh Mevani.
Known to be the voice of the marginalized Dalits in Gujarat, Jignesh Mevani has definitely succeeded in creating a place for himself in politics.
