Gujarat Assembly election 2022: The AAP emerged victorious on five seats — namely Botad, Dediapada, Gariadhar, Jamjodhpur and Visavadar. But on how many and which seats did the Arvind Kejriwal's party give a hard time to the BJP and Congress? Read on to know.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) swept the Gujarat Assembly elections 2022, breaking its own record by winning 156 seats in the 182-member House and retaining power for the seventh consecutive term. However, it saw a new opponent rise in Gujarat in the form of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) which managed to win five seats and also secure the required vote share to now be christened a national party.
It is noteworthy, that though BJP has won in Gujarat convincingly for a long time now, Congress has not been a complete pushover. Even in the last assembly election, it managed to get a respectable 77 seats. However, now, Aam Aadmi Party has emerged as the third force in the westernmost state of India.
Analysts say that the AAP has made inroads majorly in the Congress vote bank.
