The people of Gujarat have spoken in the two phases of polling of state Assembly elections. The counting of votes will take place on December 8 and the conclusion will arrive. After the completion of the Phase 2 polling, news channels released their exit polls indicating a major win and sixth consecutive win for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
In the 2017 state Assembly elections, the Congress led a head-to-head fight with the BJP but could not win. This time, the Congress is still struggling to surpass the majority mark. On the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has not performed too well as their projections were something else. As per the exit polls, the AAP will get a minimum of two or a maximum of 10 seats.
According to ABP C-Voter, the AAP will get 3-11 seats and the Republic-P Mark has projected between 2-10 seats. Even if the AAP is losing Gujarat, that does not intend that they have performed inadequately. For the past six months, AAP National Convenor and Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has organised consecutive rallies and made an impact entry in the home state of BJP. The AAP has certainly captured the spot of the strongest opposition in Gujarat.
Around 20% vote share is projected for the AAP in Gujarat. Despite the fact that the AAP is not earning 92+ seats, the AAP has risen from state politics to national politics. If a political party gets more than 6% vote share in the political state capital of India, which is Gujarat then the party has cleared the path to be one of the national political parties.
The AAP has already captured the vote bank of Delhi, Punjab and Goa.
