Taking a dig at Congress, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani said, ”Congress is a sinking ship, they’ve lost connect with people. Results are against them everywhere. It’s a party sans leadership. The results (Gujarat by-polls) are trailer of upcoming local polls here.”

The Gujarat bypolls were necessitated after sitting Congress MLAs resigned ahead of Rajya Sabha polls in June this year. Five of them then joined the ruling BJP, which fielded them from the same seats they had won in the 2017 elections.
