Though his party's overall tally in the state dipped dramatically, Advani's victory margin went significantly up, compared to 188,927 in 1999, when he defeated the Congress candidate, former chief election commissioner T.N. Seshan.

In contrast, BJP candidate Katara had nervous moments as the counting was on. He was declared winner by a slim margin of 362, provoking the Congress to seek a recount.

The recount showed Katara defeated his nearest rival, Prabhaben Taviad of the Congress, by a slightly more slender margin of 361 votes.

Katara retained the seat that he won by a margin of 12,431 votes in 1999.
