Prime Minister Narendra Modi's BJP, which came to power in Gujarat for the sixth time, faced a tough battle against a renewed Congress under the leadership of newly elected party president Rahul Gandhi. The BJP, whose chief Amit Shah, had set a target of 150 plus seats for the party in the 182-seat assembly, faced a greater challenge that they probably expected. Counting of votes began at 8 am this morning. Usually on election counting day, results are more or less known by midday, but today's contest between the BJP and the Congress kept everyone guessing the margin of victory till late evening.

The BJP, though seen to be getting a majority mandate, has been reduced to double digits and finished with 99 seats, down sixteen. Campaigns in Gujarat, both by the BJP and the Congress, were high-pitched and bitterly-fought.
