Rajkot civic elections results: Of 72 seats, BJP leads in 38, Congress in 34 in nail-biting contest

The counting for the Gujarat civic elections is underway at various centres in the state.

In Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC), it's a nail-biting electoral battle.

Of total 72 seats in the RMC, BJP is leading in 38 seats while Congress is leading in 34 seats.

The counting of votes for the Gujarat civic polls began amid tight security arrangements on Wednesday at 9 am and is underway.

The local bodies polls in Gujarat is being seen a litmus test for the ruling BJP against the backdrop of Patel quota agitation.

The Congress is hoping to make a comeback in the state, cashing in on resentment of the Patel community against BJP.
