Election results of 20 Assembly constituencies in Gujarat have been challenged before the High Court by losing candidates, who have filed separate election petitions. Elections to the 182-member Gujarat Assembly were held in December last year. Election petitions have been filed with regard to Jamalpur-Khadia, Patan, Gandhinagar (N), Botad, Dholka, Himmatnagar, Varachha Road, Limbayat, Gariyadhar, Godhra, Danilimda, Prantij, Santrampur, Mandvi, Porbandar, Vagra, Martar, Dabhoi, Kamrej and Devbhoomi Dwarka seats. Congress candidates had won from four of these seats, while the rest went to the BJP. Petitioners have raised various issues, including use of “faulty” electronic voting machines (EVMs) to challenge the outcome. They have demanded cancellation of election results and fresh elections. Some of these constituencies are now represented by ruling BJP’s senior leaders like Bhupendrasinh Chudasama (Dholka), Saurabh Patel (Botad) and Babu Bokhiriya (Porbandar).

In Dholka, where Chudasama won, postal ballots were not counted, claims the petition filed by Congress’s Ashvin Rathod who lost by a thin margin. The petitions would come up for hearing in the coming days, court sources said. BJP retained power in Gujarat, winning 99 seats, while Congress and its allies clinched 81.
