    BJP wins 23 out of 33 seats by-poll in Gujarat

    AHMEDABAD: Bhartiya Janta Party on Tuesday had something to rejoice for after humiliation of Mansa bypoll recently. Of the 32 local bodies seats for which elections were held on Sunday, BJP won 22 seats - a gain of 10 seats. The Congress could manage to win only nine seats. On one seat BJP candidate was declared winner unopposed.

    One seat in Porbander Nagarpalika, the constituency of Gujarat Pradesh Congress President Arjun Modhwadia, was bagged by an Independent candidate Malde Balu Odedara.


    Similarly, on one seat in Nadiad Nagarpalika, BJP candidate was declared elected unopposed. Of the eight nagarpalika seats, the BJP won five, while two seats were won by Congress and one was by Independent candidate.

    Of the three district panchayat seats for which byelection were held, BJP won two, while one was bagged by the Congress. State Election Commission said that of the 20 taluka panchayat seats, BJP won 14 while the Congress candidates won the remaining six seats.

    The BJP claimed they had won seats in the areas where the Congress leaders were representing the constituency. In Bhavnagar, according to BJP leaders, the Congress candidate even lost his deposit in Talaja municipality seat poll.

    In addition, BJP came to power in Palanpur taluka panchayat.

    The elections to six seats of the taluka panchayat were held after six Congress members had resigned. BJP has captured Pethapur municipality in Gandhinagar district by winning one seat. Pethapur was the area of Shankersinh Vaghela, chairman of the party's state election campaign committee.

    The BJP also wons on two municipality seats, two district panchayat seats and one taluka panchayat seat in Kheda and Anand districts.

    For the Congress, the only consolation was that it snatched two seats from the BJP in Kheralu area. The Congress also won Sarasiya district panchayat seat in Amreli. The seat was earlier with BJP.

    In Ahmedabad taluka also the Congress won Detroj seat. The opposition leaders alleged that BJP misused the administration to win byelections.

    BJP spokesperson said that the people of Gujarat have once again supported the party's politics of development led by chief minister Narendra Modi, and have slapped the negative politics of Congress.

    The ruling party said that Shankarsinh Vaghela, Shaktisinh Gohil and Arjun Modhwadia always work with anti-Gujarat and anti-development mentality and hence the Congress lost even in the areas that were considered its strongholds.

    last time, BJP won only 13. Earlier, It was Congress stronghold. This time BJP won 23 and increased the number from 1/3rd to 2/3rd. BJP won most of the local bodies election in Gujarat in last 10 years which proves that people of Gujarat are happy with performance and development of the state.

    I am sure the Congress snatched something.

    Or have they not?

    How about mentioning that so that we have a complete picture of the election.

    The local bodies election, I think, is for local issues.
