When election season is on, and is heating up the capital this winter. Here is look at the last election contested in Capital. And that was Gandhinagar municipal corporation election. Though Gandhinagar Mayor and 2 others have changed the party but this is when they didn’t switch. Of the 33 seat in Gandhinagar municipal corporation (GMC), the Congress had a strength 18 while the BJP had 15 Councillors With the defection, the BJP may informally claim a clear majority. However, the suspension will push the GMC into a strange situation after elections are over in December. BJP is now bound to lead the general board meeting, while the standing committee of the GMC – which is the main policy-making elected body, is still with the Congress.
In addition, the three defected Congress corporators are yet to be disqualified from the municipal corporation as they have to formally refuse to follow Congress mandate in the general board. “Since the election code of conduct is in force no such proceedings or the general board is in session and no disqualification procedure would be carried out till December 20,” says a Congress leader.
Gandhinagar has been traditionally a Congress bastion. However local MLA and MP are from BJP, because Assembly and Parliament constituency enjoys larger area other than Gandhinagar town in its bound. If we look at the core Gandhiangar Municipal Corporation area, even Advani and Vajpayee had not received majority in this particular geographical area in past. Gandhinagar district panchayat is ruled by Congress party.

Important Highlights of the elections
-Gandhinagar is like a government colony, and it has major population of government employees. It is believed that government employees are not happy with the government, and that has reflected in results.
-Gandhinagar has negligible Muslim population.
Now this election only shows, you should choose the right people at right place and not get into their false commitments. Choose the people who are interested and capable to play a vital role in development of the state and not those who give 100 rupees, a chicken tikka and false promises. If you think Gujarat has seriously developed then go with current Government, if you doubt then go with Congress. My funny take suggests a combined rule. So nobody can cheat and all have to
