Reason for Congress to move to number three in Surat
This time the Congress is losing more than the 2015 elections in Surat. There are two reasons for this. First, the Congress was opposed by the Patidar Reservation Committee (PASS). Secondly, the Aam Aadmi Party gave tickets to the Patidar candidates and campaigned keeping the same area at the center. This was the reason that the Aam Aadmi Party overtook the Congress here as well. The BJP also did road shows in the Patidar areas, but despite this, the target of winning all 120 seats does not seem possible. In the previous Surat, BJP got 80 out of 120 and Congress 36 seats.
Total 2,276 candidates in 6 municipal corporations, highest of BJP
The tenure was completed only in December last year
The tenure of these six municipal corporations, except Gandhinagar and Junagadh, was completed in December last year, but elections were not held due to Corona. The corporation government was dissolved due to this. The Municipal Commissioner was running the corporation.
Elections are also to be held in district-taluka panchayats
Elections will be held in 31 districts, 231 taluka panchayats and 81 municipalities next Sunday i.e. 28 February.
