Moreover, Congress is also likely to lose the post of the Leader of Opposition in the state.

Rahul Gandhi’s Congress barely managed to win 17 seats in Gujarat. This is severely down from its tally of 77 in the 2017 elections. This is also the worst performance of the Congress in Gujarat. Experts are blaming Congress’s silent, localised door-to-door campaign for a near evaporation of the party.

AAP gains national party tag

However, at least Congress was able to win seats in North Gujarat and win Himachal Election but despite several campaigns the election results have come as a disappointment to the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party. AAP could not draw enough voters and had to settle for 5 seats in its debut elections in Gujarat and worst to their fears the party drew a blank in Himchal Pradesh.  

But Contrary to how things may appear, AAP has a lot to look forward. Yes! the party may have only won MCD elections but did manage to leave an impression despite its single-digit tally in the state. Winning 5 seats, Aam Aadmi Party has dared to breach the fortress of PM Modi and Amit Shah in Gujarat.

With its government in two states and one Corporation under its fold, Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party. now ranks third after the BJP and Congress, leaving behind all other regional parties.

Congress party wins in himachal pradesh

After clenching victory in the Himachal elections, the grand old party’s next challenge is to decide on a Chief Minister. The Congress Party has called a meeting of all of its MLAs in Shima’s Radisson Hotel at 3 pm where the grand old party will entrust one to become the CM of Himachal Pradesh.

The party’s win was informed on December 8, the day of vote counting for the Himachal and Gujarat assembly elections. The Congress outfit succeeded to dethrone the incumbent BJP from Himachal and profit of off the Himachal tradition of voting out the incumbency in every election.

The Congress Party is now expected to choose from 3 leaders to entrust one to the role of Chief Minister. The names of the candidates who are in the race to be perceived as potential CM include Congress’s State Party President Pratibha Singh who is reportedly among the favorites from the lot. The other 2 potential CM faces include Former Party Chief Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu and CLP leader Mukesh Agnihotri.

The Congress party’s decision to choose a CM candidate that can keep the Himachal cadre tied together comes as a big challenge for the grand old party, specially when the BJP has continuously taken a dig at the grand old party’s CM candidate.

Pratibha Singh, the wife of the former CM of Himachal Vibhadra Singh, is considered to be the favorite to continue on her husband’s legacy who was voted into power for 4 terms. She, however, didn’t contest the election but was amongst the leading people who ran the Congress’s Himachal campaign effectively, leading to them being voted into power.

Singh has claimed the loyalty of all the MLAs who were loyal to her Husband priorly and hence it is reported that she is confident about being chosen as the CM.

On the other hand, Naduan’s MLA Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu and Haroli MLA Agnihotri should be hoping to be in the race of favorites owing to their former stint as PCC chief and as Congress Legislature Party leader. Aside from the two, the former Himachal Party chief Kuldeep Singh Rathore is also a hopeful candidate for CM face.

It would be interesting to see the grand old party’s decision on the CM role as the BJP had previously questioned the Congress over its CM candidate.

Himachal Pradesh is to witness a close fight between the BJP and the Congress for the 68-member Assembly, said exit polls on Monday, the day polling ended in the second phase in Gujarat.

The exit poll projections seemed to favour the Congress’s return in the state. Congress is also expected to get some 30 seats. Thus, the BJP and the Congress are in a neck-and-neck competition. This also holds true if one goes by the trend in Himachal Pradesh of people alternating between the two big parties.

The single-phase polls in Himachal Pradesh on November 12 registered a record 75.6 per cent polling on all 68 seats. In the 2017 Assembly elections, the voter turnout was 75.57 per cent.

While 76.4 per cent of women voters exercised their franchise, only 72.4 per cent of male voters did the same in 2022. The voting percentage for the third gender was 68.4 per cent. There were 27.88 lakh men and 27.36 lakh women in the electorate overall, with 38 voters registered as third genders.

The state election department focused heavily on 11 constituencies with low voter turnout in the 2017 elections for the assembly, according to the SEO statement.

The voter turnout finally increased in nine of these constituencies—Dharampur, Jaisinghpur, Shimla, Baijnath, Bhoranj, Solan, Kasumpati, Sarkaghat, Jaswant Pragpur, Hamirpur, and Badsar—by up to seven per cent of the 11 seats.

The Dharampur seat had a 6.93 percentage point increase from 63.6 per cent in 2017 to 70.54 per cent in the recent election. However, the percentage decreased significantly in Shimla and Baijnath, from 63.93% in 2017 to 62.53% and from 64.92% in 2017 to 63.46%, respectively.

The exit polls predict a close fight between the grand old party and the saffron party according to Aaj Tak-Axis My India the BJP is at 29 whereas its counterpart is at 35, however, as per the ABP News-Cvoter exit poll prediction the BJP is at succeeding with 37 whereas the Congress is at 28. The Aam Aadmi Party has failed to change any flare in the voting trends as the exit polls predict nothing for AAP in Himachal Pradesh.
