A total of 93 seats are up for election in the second phase polls of the crucial Assembly elections in the BJP bastion. This time, the election is a three-cornered fight between the ruling BJP, Congress, and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
Among those who voted early this morning were Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel. In a statement to the media, the Prime Minister thanked the Election Commission for conducting the election and encouraged voters to go to the polls.
Also, Chief Minister Patel appealed to the people to vote. Along with his family members, Amit Shah cast his vote today. After the polls close at 5 p.m., exit polls will be released.
Low turnout in the first phase of the Gujarat election on December 1 prompted the Election Commission to criticize “urban apathy.” As of 1 pm, 34.7% of voters had turned out.
Today, 93 seats will be contested by 833 candidates. Ahmedabad has 16 urban seats among them. The BJP has dominated these seats for three decades and is crucial to its future.
In the last election, the Congress won four seats in Ahmedabad compared to two in 2012. In this election, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has candidates in all 16 seats.
Ahmedabad’s Muslim-dominated Jamalpur Khadia seat could be upset by Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM’s entry, as AIMIM’s candidate, Sabir Kabliwala, was a former Congress MLA who fought as an independent in 2012, resulting in a BJP victory.
All 93 seats are being contested by the BJP and AAP. Its partner, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), has fielded candidates in two seats.
Among the key seats in the second phase are Ghatlodia in Ahmedabad, where Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel is contesting; Viramgam, also in Ahmedabad, where Patidar leader Hardik Patel will represent the BJP; and Gandhinagar South, where Alpesh Thakor will represent the BJP.
Jignesh Mevani, a Dalit leader, is running as the Congress candidate for the Vadgam seat in Banaskantha district, and Sukhram Rathva is running for Jetpur in Chhota Udepur.
In the second phase, 2.51 crore people will be able to vote. According to the Election Commission, 5.96 lakh voters are between 18 and 19 years old. The votes will be counted on December 8.
