LIVE Gujarat By Election Result 2020: BJP out of 8 seats in Gujarat and Congress ahead in 1 seat

Bharatiya Janata Party candidates are leading in the Assembly seats of Abdasa, Gadhada, Limbdi, Morbi Dhari, Dang, Kaprada. Congress is leading in only one assembly seat, Karjan.
While the BJP seems relaxed about these election results, because its government is not going to have any effect, reputation for the Congress is the biggest question. Because, the 8 seats where the by-elections have been held, are vacated by the resignation of Congress MLAs and joining the BJP.
These seats are Abdasa, Morbi, Kaprada, Dhari, Karjan, Limandi, Gadhada and Dang assembly seats. By the way, according to the exit poll, the BJP continues to prevail in Gujarat.

The image of BJP’s Brijesh Merja was tarnished due to the change of party, Congress seems to be benefiting here.

According to the exit poll, BJP seems to be getting 6 to 7 seats out of the 8 seats in Gujarat. At the same time, the Congress may have to be satisfied with the 0-1 seat. If the results of the exit poll prove to be correct, then it will not be less than a shock to the Congress. Congress will be further weakened in the state.
According to exit polls, BJP can get 49 percent votes in these by-elections, while only 40 percent votes are seen even after the hard work of Congress.
