The seats that BJP couldn’t win
Ahmedabad, 21 December 2012
Here are the seats that BJP couldn’t win in 2012 elections.
BJP has lost Kutch’s Abdasa seat. This seat was with party in 2007 elections. Congress’s Chhabilbhai Patel has won this seat with margin of 7613 votes. Abadasa has interesting history of not reelecting a sitting MLA. BJP’s Jayanti Banushali was sitting MLA. Bhanushali is Kutch district BJP President too. Abadasa seat has good number of Kshatriya and Muslim voters and it is understood that they voted for Congress in large number. The third candidate of GPP got 19631 votes and proved spoiler. Congress’s Chhabilbhai was earlier elected from Mandvi. The result of this seat shows that the land next to Sir Creek has not voted for BJP convincingly.
BJP has lost Amreli seat where Congress’s Paresh Dhanani defeated Agriculture Minister Dileep Sanghani by margin of 29893 votes. Dhanani is young and he has defeated Purushottam Rupala in Amreli in past. Dhanani behaved on assembly floor in worst manner when he was MLA in past. It has to be seen whether he has grown up now or not.
