Gujarat Election Result 2021 : Today is Election Day in the state of Gujarat. Voting has been organized today on the vacant seats in various Municipal Corporations and Municipalities of Gujarat. Among these seats, all eyes are on Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation elections, including by-election in Chandkheda ward of Ahmedabad, one seat of Gandevi Palika ward 3 of Navsari district and ward 6 of Bilimora Palika. There is one seat in Vansada taluka, 28 seats in Zari and one seat in Roomla district panchayat
Let me tell you that the BJP was ruling in the three vacant seats, only the Congress was in power in the Zari seat. So it will be a challenge for the BJP to win the Zari seat. While the Congress-elected Vansada MLA has made a desperate attempt for a re-Zari seat to save his reputation.
