Challenging seats for BJP
Congress has been continuously winning from Mahudha seat in Kheda district of Gujarat since 1975, BJP or Janata Dal has never been able to open an account here.
In Vyara seat of Bardoli district too, no party other than Congress has won, of course independent candidates won in 1990 and 1995, but no party like BJP or Janata Dal has ever won.
The Jhalod assembly in Dahod district has been dominated by the Congress for decades, where a BJP candidate won only once in 2002. Apart from this, BJP has never been able to win here.
Hardik Patel has expressed hope that the party is going to put up its best ever performance in the Gujarat Assembly. He also said that there is no doubt that BJP is going to form the government for the seventh consecutive time in the state.
