BJP could lose majority in Gujarat, says ABP-CSDS survey

Gujarat will see a close fight between the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress in the upcoming Assembly polls, as a recent opinion survey has predicted that each party will get 43 per cent votes.

Significantly, the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has dipped by 18 points from 82% in August to 64% in November.

Gujarat is slated to go to polls in two phases - on December 9 and 14.

The Congress is also hoping to bridge a gap of nearly 9 per cent vote share, the difference that led the BJP to victory in 2012.

The poll also shows that while the Patidars and Dalits are likely to vote for the Congress, the BJP is likely to bag votes from communities such as the Kolis and the upper castes. The UP civic polls were touted as the first litmus test of Yogi Adityanath after the BJP stormed to power in March. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who has been drafted as the key campaigner in Gujarat and went on a almost 90-day whirlwind tour of the state, described it as a "historic win".
