◆Urban voters still with BJP, rural Gujarat behind Congress

【Ahmedabad】Though people turned up in large numbers to attend Patidar leader Hardik Patel’s anti-BJP rallies in the cities of Gujarat, they ended up voting for the saffron party, which won nearly one-third of their total of 99 seats from eight major cities in the state. Patel had supported the Congress in the polls.
 Though there was a minor dent of two seats in its urban seat tally in comparison to 2012, the BJP managed to retain the support of most of its urban voters. On the other hand, rural voters put more trust on the Congress, which improved its rural tally significantly. Out of the total 42 urban seats in Gujarat, the BJP won 36, while six went to the Congress. In 2012, the BJP’s urban tally was 38 while the Congress bagged four seats.
 The BJP managed to retain power in Gujarat, the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, by winning 99 seats in the 182-member Assembly.
