The 182-member Gujarat Assembly went to polls in two phases on the 9th and 14th of this month, while polling for 68 seats of Himachal Pradesh was held on the 9th of last month. Mevani raised his voice against Dalit atrocities.

BJP has ruled the state since 1998, Congress is seeking to make a comeback, but it is going to be tough.

The leaders of three parties - the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the regional Janata Dal (Secular) - have begun their campaigns.

While pollsters have predicted an easy win for the BJP, the Congress has rejected surveys.

-According to the EC data, the tribal-dominated Narmada district witnessed the highest voter turnout of 79.15 percent, while Devbhumi-Dwarka of Saurashtra region recorded the lowest at 59.39 percent.

In Himachal Pradesh, 48 counting centers have been set up where 2,820 officers would be deployed.

Apart from this, larger-than-life cut-out posters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah have also been put up.
