Ahmedabad: The fate of incumbent Chief Minister Narendra Modi has been sealed in ballot boxes. And we will know the results of Gujarat Assembly Elections on December 20.

However, many are asking one question: did Keshubhai Patel, who quit the BJP and launched his own Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP), helped Modi or harm him?

While we will get the answer for sure on Thursday, many are speculating that Keshubhai’s party is going to lose badly and most of its 84 candidates will lose their deposits, reported The Times of India.

Many say the GPP chief’s target was a hung Assembly where his few men could dictate terms and ensure Modi doesn’t return as CM for a third consecutive time. However, the record turnout perhaps speaks for itself. And the exit polls are also saying the same – that Modi is coming back stronger than ever.

If Modi wins as expected, the Congress is most likely to blame Keshubhai Patel for having split the anti-Modi vote.
