Gujarat: BJP surges ahead of Cong, AAP in early trends

The counting of votes for 182 Assembly seats in Gujarat is underway. The polls were held in two phases with 89 seats voting on December 1, while the second phase of polling was held on December 5 in 92 Assembly segments. Gujarat registered a voter turnout of 64.33% for the recently-concluded elections, a drop of over 4% compared with the turnout registered in the last Assembly polls in 2017.

Exit polls have predicted that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is projected to secure its seventh consecutive term in the State.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday took an impressive lead over Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as counting of votes for Gujarat assembly elections got underway.

Early reports from counting centres, collated by PTI showed the BJP was ahead in 15 seats, while the Congress appeared headed for a distant second spot in the three-way contest precipitated by the entry of the AAP into the poll arena of the western State. The Congress was seen leading in 5 seats and the AAP was ahead in a seat.
