The victory of AIMIM on seven seats in the 44-member Godhra municipality may lead to celebrations as the party made an entry in the town and the district via these seats, but the result was not unexpected or surprising. The AIMIM had contested on eight seats in the town and winning seven out of them. The party may find it difficult to get into any equation that gives it a share of power in the municipality but may emerge as a force to reckon with in the town and the district.
AIMIM had successfully cornered the votes of the minority community on seats where it contested as the contestants against it were largely independent. The party had also ensured that the electorate understood that these independents took sides as per their convenience and betrayed the electorate. The party also put across the points that the independents had done little for the western parts of the town where the minority community stayed.
The BJP has won 18 seats in the 44-member municipality and needs five more corporators to establish a majority. With 18 independents winning the polls, it will eye support from some of these corporators. One of the independent is a BJP rebel Raju Darji. The Congress managed to win only one seat in the municipality.
