Somnath, December 18: The counting of votes for Gujarat assembly elections has just begun by the Election Commission on Monday morning. After three months of high decibel campaign for India’s most crucial election, the results will be declared today. The state assembly election which is also viewed as a prestige battle for both Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is also a litmus test for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The results for Gir Somnath district where more than 20 powerful candidates are in the fray for four MLA (Member of Legislative Assembly) seats – Somnath, Talala, Kodhinor (SC), Una – will also be clear by today afternoon. (Check out live news updates on Gujarat assembly elections here)

In Gujarat, the BJP is seeking a sixth straight term, whereas the Congress is aiming to stage a comeback in power after staying in opposition for over last two decades.

Today’s result is considered as a litmus test for the BJP which has already started its preparation for 2019 General elections. Modi had come to power in 2014 based on Gujarat’s ‘development model’.

The counting today morning started at 37 centres across the state’s 33 districts, amid tight security.

The elections in Gujarat was held following an acrimonious campaign, where both the main political parties indulged in no-holds-barred attacks on each other.

From BJP’s side, PM Modi led the campaign, while Rahul Gandhi was playing the main role in Congress’s electioneering.

In 2017, the total voter turnout went down by 2.91 per cent, as compared to the 2012 polls when 71.32 per cent polling was registered.

Out of total 33 districts, 15 recorded over 70 per cent polling, while 17 others clocked between 60 per cent and 70 per cent.
