Prime Minister Narendra Modi today cast his vote after waiting in a queue to exercise his right at a polling booth set up at a school in Sabarmati constituency of Ahmedabad. BJP has been ruling the state for over 20 years. In 2012, the then chief minister Narendra Modi had won 116 seats whereas Shakti-Sinh Gohil-led Congress managed to win mere 60 seats. Notably, BJP got a big shock from the Grand Old Party, when Congress leader Ahmed Patel emerged victorious in the Rajya Sabha elections held in August this year.
