Before announcing the schedule for elections in Gujarat, the Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar expressed condolences for the victims of the Morbi bridge collapse.

In Gujarat, the BJP has been in power for 27 long years. The Congress, which gave a tough fight to the saffron party in 2017, is trying hard to return to power in the state. However, with AAP making its entry in the western state the fight has become tougher for the Congress this time.
