Gujarat Assembly Election results

Gujarat Assembly Election results

"Counting of votes will be held at 37 locations across 33 districts in the State under elaborate security arrangements", Gujarat Chief Electoral Officer B.B. Swain has said.

Counting of votes started this morning for the high-stakes Gujarat Assembly polls, considered a prestige battle for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his home state and a litmus test for new Congress president Rahul Gandhi. However, skepticism pervades in the betting market as their in-depth analysis during the Uttar Pradesh Assembly election 2017 went awry after BJP had a clean sweep.

The verdict will decide the fate of 337 candidates including Chief Ministerial nominees Virbhadra Singh (Congress) and Prem Kumar Dhumal (Bharatiya Janata Party). The Congress questioned the ruling party's development model as Mr Gandhi attacked Mr Modi and the BJP for "not talking about the future of Gujarat" and skipping key problems faced by people.

The Congress and the BJP contested in all the 68 constituencies while the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) fielded 42 candidates and the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) 14. The election saw the Congress stitching a broad social coalition with prominent Patidar, OBC, and dalit leaders - Hardik Patel, Alpesh Thakor and Jigesh Mevani - in its bid to unseat the BJP after over two decades.

The voting was held following an acrimonious campaign where both the main political parties indulged in no-holds- barred attacks on each others. The hill state recorded a record 75.28 per cent turnout in the November 9 election.

Exit polls have exited and it's all over to the results of the Gujarat Assembly Election 2017 on December 18.
