The Election Commission has announced the dates for the Gujarat Assembly elections. The Gujarat Assembly elections will be held in two phases. Voting will be held on 89 seats on 1 December and 93 seats on 5 December in this election being held for 182 seats. The results of which will come on December 8 i.e. along with the Himachal Assembly elections.
Before the announcement of the election dates, Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar also expressed grief over the Morbi bridge accident in Gujarat. He said that this time in Gujarat, 4.6 lakh people will vote for the first time.
CEC Rajiv Kumar also answered the questions arising on the Election Commission. He said- If someone raises questions on EVMs and if he wins the election, then the questions are closed. Our motto is fair elections and the Election Commission has not been formed today. Our impartiality has always been evident. When there is a cricket match, both the parties blame the umpire. There is no third umpire here. Election commission is not formed today. This is a legacy. It is our duty to carry forward the fairness that has already been created.
This time the Bharatiya Janata Party has set a target of winning more than 160 seats out of 182 seats. Home Minister Amit Shah is scheduled to visit Gandhinagar on Thursday to decide the names of the candidates. BJP has got the names of 4,340 people so far. Out of this, maximum 1,490 are from North Gujarat. Saurashtra has 1,163, Central Gujarat has got 962 and South Gujarat has got the least biodata 725.
However, this time the election is completely different from last time. The biggest reason for this is that in 2017 there was a direct contest between BJP and Congress in Gujarat, but this time AAP is also involved in the fight. Hardik Patel, the biggest face of the movement, has also joined the BJP. So this election has become interesting.
