Gujarat Assembly Election Results 2022: BJP Heading Towards Historic Win

Ahmedabad: BJP is seen registering a historic victory in Gujarat. As per the counting trends, BJP has won 52 out of 182 seats and is ahead on 102. If the trends translate into results, the BJP will break Congress's record of winning 149 seats in 1985. According to sources, Bhupendra Patel will take oath as CM on December 11 at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

The Congress won 149 seats in the 1985 elections under the leadership of Madhav Singh Solanki. On crossing the 150 mark, the BJP will break the record of Congress's biggest victory. 

The BJP had won 127 seats in the 2002 elections when Modi was the CM of Gujarat. The interesting thing is that during the election campaign PM Modi had said – Bhupendra will break Narendra's record. This is visible in the results.

BJP leads in Morbi

Though the Patidar-dominated Morbi Assembly seat in Gujarat is considered a stronghold of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the poll equations this time may change due to many factors, including the recent bridge tragedy which claimed 135 lives, political observers say.
