BJP gets seventh successive term in Gujarat, in Himachal, Congress gain lead after neck-and-neck fight with BJP


As votes were tallied today in two states, the BJP raced to its best-ever result in Gujarat, with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) eating into Congress numbers. In Himachal Pradesh, the Congress has taken the lead following a neck-and-neck battle with the BJP in early polls.

In Gujarat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state, the BJP leads in 155 seats. The Congress, which performed well in the last election, is leading by 18 seats, or around 60 fewer than in 2017.

Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP, which was hoping to make a huge impact in Gujarat politics with this election, is leading in six seats. Gujarat has 182 seats, with a 92 seats is the majority mark.

The BJP held an early lead in Himachal Pradesh, which has 68 seats, but the Congress overcame it after an hour of counting. The Congress now leads in 39 seats, while the BJP leads in 26.

In Himachal, the saffron party has been betting on PM Modi’s accomplishments to ensure a seamless transition to a second term, despite the fact that the state alternates between the BJP and the Congress every five years.
