In Gujarat Civic Body Elections, Leads For BJP

Mr Sinha said a total of 2,060 seats were at stake.

As per schedule, the polling was to be held in 75 municipalities but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) won Jafrabad municipality unopposed. In six, no one got a majority, while independents got 4. The elections for the same were held on Saturday.

State Chief Electoral Officer Varesh Sinha said the Bahujan Samaj Party and the Nationalist Congress Party also registered victory in one municipality each while Independents in four. However, the win was not as massive as it was earlier as the Congress emerged like a phoenix from ashes and reduced the winning margin for the BJP. In the 2017 Assembly polls, Congress candidate Amit Chavda had won the Anklav constituency. Presently, BJP is in ruling with 59 corporations in the state. In fact, Congress has lost all the three municipalities in Mehsana district this time, also losing Kheralu and Vijapur to BJP. It won 27 out of 28 seats in seven wards.

The BJP had lost the Unjha segment, which included Prime Minister Narendra Modi's hometown Vadnagar, in the assembly elections in December. It is part of Unjha Assembly constituency which had gone to Congress in the 2017 election. The result of Nagar Palika chunav 2018 is announced today and it looks like that BJP once again ruled the election.

Another setback for the Congress was in Chhotaudepur municipality, a tribal belt. The tally of 444 seats in 2013 polls has gone up to 652.
