Gandhinagar: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has registered a thumping victory in the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC) elections in Gujarat.
Of the total 44 seats, the party has won 41, while the Congress managed to bag two seats, while Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) got only one.
Counting of votes for Gandhinagar municipal corporation in Gujarat, which had gone for a poll on October 3 began at 9 AM.
These polls were held after the ruling BJP removed Vijay Rupani from the chief minister’s post and gave Bhupendra Patel charge of the top seat recently.
It was being seen as a litmus test for the party’s abrupt and surprising decision to change the entire government, as it had registered a landslide win in the local bodies polls held in February.
