The ruling Bharaja Bharatiya Janata Party (Bharatiya Janata Party) once again had a bumper victory in Gujarat and exploded as anti-incumbency. In the civic elections in the midst of the Kisan movement, the BJP recaptured all six municipalities of Gujarat and the Congress suffered a humiliating defeat. Alam means the party’s account has not been opened in Surat, but the Aam Aadmi Party is in second place after winning more than two dozen seats here.
The BJP has won 489 seats out of a total of 576 seats, 100 more than last time. The BJP won 389 out of 572 seats in the 2015 election. The Congress body elections, which performed poorly in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, were also bad this time. This time, the party won only 45 seats, but in 2015 it won 174 seats.
Besides Ahmedabad and Jamnagar, Congress held the same number in all other metropolitan areas, so the account could not be opened in Surat. The Congress won 15 seats in Ahmedabad while BJP won 165 out of a total of 192 seats. Results are yet to come in three positions. At the same time, the BJP won 50 seats out of a total of 65 seats in Jamnagar, while the Congress won 11. The Congress won 8 seats in Bhavnagar while the BJP won 44 seats. In Vadodara, the BJP won 69 of the 76 seats, while the Congress was reduced to seven. While the BJP won 68 seats in Rajkot, the Congress managed to win only 4 seats.
In Surat, the BJP fed the lotus for 93 seats and the Aam Aadmi Party led the Congress here and won 27 seats. The oldest party in the country could not even win one of the 120 seats. In 2015, the party won 36 seats. Not even one of these could survive.
Asaduddin Owaisi’s party AIIMIM raided the Congress stronghold in Ahmedabad and captured seven seats while the BSP won three seats in Jamnagar. The two-tiered local bodies elections in the state are being considered as the semi-finals of the 2022 Assembly elections.
