 PM Modi in October held a roadshow in the constituency to further consolidate BJP's fortunes here and launched a host of projects. 

Congress is too trying to unseat BJP, hoping to regain its lost ground while AAP will fight to make its presence in yet anothe state. 

The Congress is seeking to oust the BJP from power in Gujarat, where it has been in rule for the last 27 years in a row. 

The Congress had given a good challenge to the BJP in the last assembly elections in Gujarat in 2017, when the Congress won 77 seats and the BJP 99.

The Congress had secured 41.44 percent votes while the BJP bagged 49.05 percent in the 2017 polls.

The entry of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the poll this time is likely to change the equations from the straight contest between the BJP and the Congress.
