BJP beats Congress, wins Gujarat by-election

By Abdul Nisar

Gujarat and Narendra Modi
Ahmedabad, Sep 17: The Party in power, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won the Kathlal assembly seat in Gujarat for the first time.

By-election in Kathlala assembly was held on Sep 13 due to the death of Congress MLA. The BJP's Kanubhai Dabhi defeated Congress candidate Ghelabhai Zala by 21, 000 votes.

"This victory is a defeat for the CBI and the Congress," said Chief Minister Narendra Modi after the results.

BJP's win ended the Congress' long-term political dominance in this part of Central Gujarat. This win also strengthens the BJP ahead of elections for municipal corporations scheduled for Gujarat.
