AAP looks for ‘Gujarat boost’ to its national ambition, elbow out Congress

Gujarat Election Result 2022 LIVE Updates: While the Bharatiya Janata Party is predicted to sweep the Gujarat Election Result 2022, all eyes are on the Aam Aadmi Party as Arvind Kejriwal looks set for a “Gujarat boost” to its national ambition. The AAP has so far been a state party and not a national one. The outcome of the Gujarat Election Result 2022 will determine the fate of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party’s national ambition. 

The AAP aims to breach the BJP’s Gujarat bastion, for which, it fielded candidates on all 182 assembly seats and carried out a high-decibel campaign in the run-up to the polls in Gujarat.

The results of the high-stakes polls in PM Modi’s home state will determine whether the AAP could successfully elbow out the Congress as number two in the tally and emerge as the principal challenger of the BJP.

The feat, if achieved, will also determine the role that Arvind Kejriwal would play in stopping the Narendra Modi juggernaut in the 2024 Lok Sabha election.

What did exit polls say for Gujarat election 2022?

Gujarat Election Result 2022 LIVE Updates: Most exit polls had predicted a major victory for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Gujarat election 2022, leading the saffron party to its best win in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state. If exit polls proved to be true, the saffron party is all set to retain power in Gujarat for the seventh consecutive term, equalling the Left Front’s feat in West Bengal.

Winning the Gujarat election 2022 could boost the rank and file of the BJP for the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha election and will give an impression that the saffron party is on track to make a comeback. For the BJP, a positive result will firm up Narendra Modi’s bid for a third consecutive term as PM in 2024.

Exit poll predictions for the BJP winning seats range from 117 to 151 in the 182-member Assembly. The BJP’s best performance so far was in 2002 when the party had won 127 seats. If the results come in line with the median value of these predictions, the BJP would have surpassed its own record of 2002.
