Election Results Live Updates: BJP Set For Record Win In Gujarat, Congress Takes Clear Lead In Himachal

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

New Delhi:

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) looks set for a record seventh straight term in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state of Gujarat  with the party leading in 155 seats in the western state, trends show. With just under 20 seats, the 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.

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.

The BJP is likely to form government on Sunday or Monday, say sources.

Along with the two states, the results of the votes polled in by-elections in six assembly constituencies in five states and the high-profile Lok Sabha seat of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav will be also counted.
