After shining in the Maharashtra civic polls, the BJP on Tuesday won the municipal and district panchayat elections in Gujarat. Out of 123 municipal and district panchayat seats in 16 districts to which by-elections were held, the BJP has won 107, while Congress could win just 16 seats. The party won in two municipalities and one taluka panchayat along with majority seats of various other local bodies on which voting was held on Sunday. The victory in Maharashtra and Gujarat came as a relief for the BJP as the polls were seen as a litmus test for the party post demonetisation drive by the government.
