Election Results 2022: The BJP is eyeing a record seventh straight term in Gujarat

New Delhi:

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), set for a record seventh straight term in Gujarat, has announced swearing-in ceremony on Monday. The event will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Leads show the BJP leading in 158 seats (up 59) in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state. With just under 20 seats, Congress is looking at its worst show ever. The Aam Aadmi Party, or AAP, which launched an aggressive campaign to make it a three-cornered contest for the first time in Gujarat, has made inroads in the western state, largely at Congress's expense. Three prominent AAP candidates, including its chief minister face Isudan Gadhvi, have lost their seat.

Himachal Pradesh, however, has proved to be a face-saver for Congress, which has taken a clear lead over the BJP after neck and neck contest after five hours of counting. The poll outcome in the hill state will decide the revival of the grand old party, which now holds power only in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, both of which will go to polls in 2023.

In the by-elections in five states including the high-profile Lok Sabha seat of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav, the Samajwadi Party is leading in all three seats in Uttar Pradesh. Biju Janta Dal is leading in Padampur.

"People Voted For BJP Because BJP Can Take Strong Decisions": PM Modi
  • The progress BJP has made under JP Nadda ji's leadership is being felt by all the party workers across the nation.
  • It is commendable that in these elections, people have truly celebrated the festival of democracy and ensured that not even in a single booth was re-election or re-polling required.
  • Not just in Gujarat, but we had a big win in the UP by-election too - in Rampur. This is also indicative of what is to come in Bihar.
  • Like Nadda ji has highlighted that the difference in the win-loss in Himachal Pradesh was less than 1%. This has never been the case in Himachal. Every 5 years Himachal generally changes govt, but it is a swing of about 4-5%. This less-than-1% swing shows that the people of Himachal as well as the BJP karyakartas of Himachal kept the BJP in and worked for the BJP's win. Today I assure everyone in Himachal, that even though we missed out a victory due to less than 1%, our determination for the development of Himachal Pradesh will still be 100%.
  • The reason why the BJP is loved so much across the nation is because the people of this nation know that BJP has the conviction and courage to take the bold and tough decisions. This is also reflected in the ever-growing support and trust that BJP is gaining with time.

  • Today, because of PM Narendra Modi ji, the poorest of the poor gets to live a life of dignity. The poor gets electricity, gets education, gets headlthcare, gets safety for women, gets an opportunity to rise in life. These are the reasons why we as well as the people of Gujarat have broken all records.
