Amid widespread criticism on the CEC for the delay in announcing the election schedule for Gujarat, the Election Commission of India yesterday declared the eagerly awaited dates for the Elections to the 14th Gujarat state assemblies.  As Gujarat is the launch pad for the present Indian BJP's icon Prime minister Narendra Mody, and as the verdict of Gujarat polls will highly affect his future positions in the party (as the sole decision maker) and the country (as the PM), it is a do-or-die battle for him and his chief associate Amit Shah.

The voting in the 182 constituencies of Gujarat state is to be held in 2 phases on December 9 and 14th, 2017. 

Schedule for the First phase:

The first phase of elections will be held to 89 constituencies is 19 districts.
Total number of voters expected to cast their votes in the first phase 2.11 crores
Notification in this regard will be issued on November - 14.
Last date for submitting nominations is November - 21
Last date for withdrawal of nominations is November - 24.
Voting will be held on December - 9th

Schedule for the 2nd phase:

The second phase of voting will be held in 93 Assembly constituencies in spread in 14 districts.
The total number of voters here are 2.21 crores.
2nd Phase Notification will be released on November - 20.
The Final date for filing nominations is - 27.
The last date for withdrawal of candidature is November - 30.
Voting process will take place on December - 14th

As most of the new controversial implementations like currency-ban, CST, high oil prices etc  introduced by the prime minister have failed miserably, the results of this elections will highly influence his image built-up by the social medias as being alleged by the opposition parties.

Gujarat state which is being ruled by the BJP for more than 16 years often claims to be the state with highest development. But many statistical reports have proved that those claims are all fake and are mere creation of media and online advertisements.

On the other hand, the Congress Party is doing its best to regain its lost power in the state. The recent victory of the Congress candidate in the Gurudaspur Parliament by-election in Punjab has given a boost to the morale of the workers and leaders of the party and its new would-be president Rahul Gandhi.

The chances of the grand alliance of all the political parties against the NDA becoming a reality is very minute, as the ruling BJP uses all the government mechanisms and investigating and enforcement agencies to give blows to such leaders and thus curb any such movements.

As the opinion polls and exit poll surveys are proven to be only manipulated things, to know the final outcome of the election results and to see who all won, we need to wait till the date of counting of votes and declaration of the results on December -18 ...!
