The elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 1 and 5. The counting of votes will take place on December 8.
The BJP has won six consecutive Assembly polls in Gujarat. The Congress is keen to take an early decision on candidates to give them more time for campaigning and is seeking to bolster its campaign through yatras. Congress on Friday announced its first list of 43 candidates for the upcoming Gujarat Assembly polls.
Unlike previous elections, this year the Aam Aadmi Party is also fighting the election with full might, led by Delhi Chief Minister and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal, which has made it a triangular contest. (ANI)
