Yogi hails victory of BJP in Guj, HP

Yogi hails victory of BJP in Guj, HP

Cheerful BJP leaders flashed victory signs outside Parliament in New Delhi.

The BJP today appeared to be on its way to retain power in Gujarat, with trends from 175 out of 182 Assembly seats giving it a lead in 100 seats while the Congress was following with 70.

To form a government in the state, a party or a coalition needs at least 92 seats in the 182-member Assembly.

By dynasty she was referring to Congress President Rahul Gandhi's lineage - great grandson of late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, grandson of late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, son of late former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi - and the party's immediate past President Sonia Gandhi.

The Election Commission figures showed that the NCP was leading in one seat and the Bhartiya Tribal Party in two seats. Gujarat has been the BJP's bastion.

But later workers gathered to shout slogans and cheer victory.

Gujarat voted in two phases on December 9 and 14.

The election in Gujarat was bitterly fought, with many analysts calling it the closest fight for Modi and his party.

Businesses across India have been struggling with the poor implementation of a goods and services tax that aims to harmonise an array of state and federal taxes but entangled them in cumbersome procedures.

To ensure his party's prospects, Modi addressed dozens of rallies during his campaign in Gujarat, performed rituals and even waved from a seaplane on his last day on the campaign trail.

The Congress party has been steadily losing ground to the BJP since Modi's party swept to power in national elections in 2014.

"This is their citadel, they threw everything at it". "Morally, it has been a brilliant intervention of Rahul Gandhi", Chowdary said.

Congress leaders on Monday said the party's improved electoral performance in Gujarat was the result of their new chief Rahul Gandhi's effective leadership and the beginning of his political story.
