The votes for Gujarat Assembly elections have been counted by the Election Commission of India, which was held in two phases.
The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) has crossed the required majority of at least 92 seats in the Gujarat Assembly elections and will form the government for record seventh time in a row.
BJP retained Gujarat by bagging 156 of the 182 Assembly seats, while the opposition Congress has won 17 seats and AAP got 5 seats. In 2017 elections, BJP had won 99 seats.
The party’s battle was spearheaded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who addressed dozens of public rallies and road shows.
