In a bid to put up a united fight against Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad's Maninagar constituency, the Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP) has withdrawn its candidate Pravin Patel from the seat.

The GPP's withdrawal came a day after Congress candidate Shweta Bhatt, wife of suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, appealed to all opposition parties to withdraw their respective candidates.

"In solidarity with her appeal, we have decided to withdraw our candidate and asked our workers to support to her," GPP leader and former CM Suresh Mehta said.
