State SP president Surendra Yadav said that the party had taken into account all the local and caste factors while fielding candidates.
The Samajwadi Party has scripted a new electoral history in Gujarat, by winning 23 out of 24 seats in Kathlal municipality in Kheda district. The results of the polls for 27 municipalities, held on February 21, were announced on Tuesday.
While the BJP won 15 municipalities, Congress bagged eight, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) won one and independents captured Thasra municipality. There is a tie between BJP and Congress in Sutrapada municipality in Gir-Somnath district as both the parties won 12 seats each.
State SP president Surendra Yadav said that the party had taken into account all the local and caste factors while fielding candidates. He said that the party had fielded 24 candidates from six wards but the candidature of one of them was rejected on technical grounds and hence, one seat went to BJP.
Among the 23 SP winners are six from Patidar community, five Muslims, four Bhavsars, two Brahmins, two scheduled caste and one each from Christian, Sodha, Thori and Bharvad communities.
Giving reasons for SP’s triumph against BJP and Congress, Yadav said, “While Congress is totally finished owing to lack of proper leadership, BJP lost its credibility in rural and semi-urban areas for not keeping its electoral promises and checking rising inflation that affects ruralites the most.”
