Gujarat Election Results 2022


In Gujarat, it was a high-stakes three-cornered fight between the BJP, Congress and AAP. Political observers said the outcome will determine who captures the main opposition space in Gujarat. Exit polls have predicted a big majority for the BJP in Gujarat. For the Congress, its role as the main challenger to the BJP is at stake and the results will reveal if the party's ‘silent campaign' has cut ice with people. For AAP, which carried out an aggressive campaign, the Gujarat election is a chance to establish itself as a pan-national party and a challenger to BJP at the national level also.
