Gujarat Election Result Highlights: The BJP on Thursday registered a historic win in Gujarat even smashing the records of the 2002 election where the party under the leadership of chief minister Narendra Modi won 127 seats. Incumbent chief minister Bhupendra Pate will be sworn in as the chief minister on December 12 at 2pm. PM Modi posted a heartfelt message thanking Gujarat for the huge mandate. “I am overcome with a lot of emotions seeing the phenomenal election results. People blessed politics of development and at the same time expressed a desire that they want this momentum to continue at a greater pace. I bow to Gujarat’s Jan Shakti,” PM Modi said.

Congress blamed AAP and AIMIM for its poor show while Rahul Gandhi accepted the mandate and promised that the party will work hard.

AAP's performance fell short in comparison with the glitz in their campaigning. But the votes in Gujarat made it a national party for which AAP leader and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal thanked people.

    Gujarat Election Result 2022 LIVE: What it matters for AAP

    The AAP is expecting to make inroads in the BJP bastion which will be a big foot forward for its national ambition. The party fielded candidates in all 182 seats and is fighting for the No. 2 position in the state.

    Already recognised as the state party in Delhi, Punjab and Goa, the AAP is just a state away from earning national party status. To earn a national party status, a political outfit needs to be recognized in at least four states, and to be recognised as a state party, it needs to win at least two seats and 6 per cent of votes polled in the Assembly election.
