BJP passes acid test in Gujarat

The BJP passed its first litmus test after demonetisation in prime minister Narendra Modi’s home state of Gujarat when it swept the civic elections in the state. The party won 109 of the 126 seats in several municipalities and several by-elections in district and taluka level panchayats and municipalities.

Though the civic elections were too local to involve senior leaders, the outcome was eagerly expected in view of the demonetisation as well as Assembly elections due in the state in about a year’s time. Although the congress said elections were “too local” to affect the Assembly poll, it has little place to hide as its own performance in the civic elections was even worse than its performance in the previous municipal elections. No wonder, the voters got a ‘salute’ from Modi for their “continued trust in BJP”. //
