Junagadh Municipal Corporation Election News Samachar Gujarat India

Gujarat by-poll: A test for Narendra Modi.

After BJP's poor performance in the recent Lok Sabha poll and the loss of Junagadh Municipal Corporation, the by-elections for seven assembly seats will be a test for the Gujarat Chief Minister.

By-elections in Jasdan, Dhoraji, Dehgam, Danta, Sami, Chotila and Kodinar on September 10 come at a time when BJP under the leadership of Modi did not perform up to the mark in the Lok Sabha elections in the state.

BJP managed to increase its tally from 14 seats last time to 15 now, though the party had expected that it would win 20 of the 26 Lok Sabha seats. The BJP also lost Junagadh Municipal Corporation elections last month.

Both Congress and BJP have started campaigning for the seven seats, six of which were held by Congress and another was held by BJP.
