Because of these reasons BJP is in cities—–

Urban voters are in favor of BJP. In total there were 144 wards and 576 seats in the 6 municipal elections. Out of which BJP won 483 seats. Whereas the Congress was reduced to only 55 seats. Other parties won 38 seats. Two things were important in this election. The first area to rule a circle in the BJP

967 km of state highways have been upgraded to national highways, out of which 769 state highways have been converted into national highways. Which is on the Coastal Highway of Saurashtra. Those who are benefiting more businesses than the people who use it.

Thus the Rupani government has increased the number of rural roads by 3 per cent as against a 35 per cent increase in city roads. Which shows that Rupani government is giving good routes in cities. But the reason for not doing so in rural areas is that rural people did not vote for Rupani in 2017. His government was formed when Rupani got votes in the cities.

Small town

In the 2015 local body elections – there was an increase of 4.59 per cent in the support base in municipal corporations, municipalities and panchayats. The result was that in the municipality-panchayat elections, the BJP

lost most of its institutions. BJP’s vote share declined by 1.25 per cent. Congress won 23 out of 31 district panchayats, 151 out of 221 taluka panchayats and 12 municipalities. The mood-changing attitude eventually took a toll on the Congress.

In 2021, the BJP got 54.19 percent of the votes in the district panchayats. Congress got 39.17 percent votes. In this way, the Aam Aadmi Party got 2.66 percent of the votes.

With the BJP government built on the votes of the urban voters, the Gujarat government is now going ahead with a plan as to why the urban areas are developing rapidly. In only five women, an urban area of ​​500 square kilometers has been increased in Gujarat. As Gujarat Chief Minister and in-charge of urban development Vijay Rupani formed the new government, he is now following a policy of rapid urbanisation. Plans for cities have accelerated.

Accelerate Urbanization – CM

The BJP government has instructed the TPO town planner and CTP and the department to expedite the implementation of the city policy. The remaining TPs are also to be completed immediately and clear orders have been given that the delay of TPs should not be hampered in the development of the city. After the finalization of the code of conduct for the Lok Sabha elections, the city administration has issued 21 TPs. Has done the work of accelerating urban expansion by approving town planning plans and development plans. The Chief Minister has approved 50 TPs in 5 months.

He also gave clear instructions to the people of the Urban Development Department that there would be no difficulty and prompt action would be taken at all levels.

50 urban planning in 5 months

50 TP approved in 5 months of 2019. The new government has approved 150 TPs in one and a half years. Which is more than all previous governments. TP scheme of 10 hectares has been made.

Ahmedabad grew up

In these plans TP 112 of Odhav, TP 54 of Oganj and TP 1 M3 of Bopal have been approved as preliminary and draft TP 28 of Ghatlodia-Sola-Chandlodia. With the approval of these 3 preliminary plans of Ahmedabad, the city will get gardens, open land, social infrastructure as well as housing for the socio-economic class. Especially with the approval of the initial TP, the land will be available for housing for the people belonging to the economically and socially weaker section and will be another step towards fulfilling the dream of a common man’s house in the urban area. The Chief Minister believes so. It literally meant increasing the population in the cities.

Highest TP in Surat

Pune 20 has approved a preliminary plan in Surat. The Chief Minister has given clear instructions to the concerned officers for speedy implementation of the draft plan as well as timely implementation of roads as well as other infrastructural facilities in the draft TP.

Why the momentum after the election?

what happened before the election

Once the final TP is approved, as soon as the TP planning is completed, all the records are handed over by the Town Planning Officer to the concerned authority and as a result, other TPs in the office of such TPO can be conducted more expeditiously. could. Small towns will get bigger. Vijaybhai Rupani has approved the final TP of Rajkot 15 Vavadis and 27 Mavadis. Development plans of Curjan and Jagadiya-Sultanpur, TP-1 preliminary and other miscellaneous schemes of Bilimora-Desara, 2 draft schemes of Bhavnagar city, 19 and 20 women have also been approved.

no one can beat bjp

30 million people live in cities. If the city continues to grow like this, then by 2024 the population of Gujarat will be more than 50 percent. If this happens then no one from Gujarat can defeat BJP, they will enjoy the power of Gujarat for a long time.

urban politics

Ahmedabad is a metro city. As the urban areas in Ahmedabad merged, electricity remained. Cities like Surat, Vadodara and Rajkot are million cities. Its population is more than 10 lakhs. What happens in big cities has a direct impact on the rural population. Due to which political parties gain or lose.

the city grew

There are 27 cities ranging from 1 to 10 lakhs. These include 4 municipal corporations Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Junagadh, Gandhinagar. In addition, the BJP is ruling all the 27 cities with 23 municipalities.

There are 34 cities with a population of 50 thousand to 1 lakh. These are all municipalities. The BJP has 90 percent of the total. There are 5 district headquarters also municipalities which include Rajpipla, Ahwa, Vyara, Lunavada, Modasa. In which BJP has a strength of more than 4.

the villagers were taken to the city

When the BJP came to power in Gujarat, the number of villages with 500 inhabitants was 3,000 which increased to 2,400 in 2011. By 2024, this will come down to close to 2,000. Thus 50 percent of the people of small villages have migrated. Had they not migrated, the number of these villages would have increased to 3500 villages. Had this been the case, BJP’s votes would have been cut.

the village will become the city

In contrast, there has been a dramatic increase in urban areas. When BJP came to power in Gujarat, there were 264 cities out of 5000. There were 348 cities in 2011 and now there are other cities by 2024.

There are 400 big villages or cities till the Lok Sabha elections come.

The population of cities is also increasing

The rural population was 2.70 crore which will increase to 3.46 crore in 2011 and 4 crore in 2024. In contrast, the urban population of 1.42 crore was 2.57 crore in 2011 and will be close to 40 million by 2014. Thus, under the BJP rule, the population growth rate in rural areas declined from 15 percent to 9.30 percent by 2011 and may reach 5 percent in 2014. Thus the population of the village is decreasing. Its Sami urban population growth rate has increased from 34% to 36% and will now reach 40% by 2024. It has a high birth rate in rural areas. If it were similar to cities, today cities and villages would have the same population and by 2024 the population of cities would be more than the population of villages.

Hindutva of 2002

In the 2002 elections, the Congress got only 35.38 percent of the votes. Which increased to 43.52 percent at the end of 2015. Thus the impact of Hindutva was enormous on the voters. Which is also the morning of 2021 today. In 2021 it has come down to 39 per cent. The population base has declined by 4 percent.

Both the Congress and the BJP are looking at the December 2022 elections as a political barometer of the mood of the Gujarati people.

Ahmedabad is broken

In 2015, after 12 years of exile in the cities, Congress received widespread support. Congress councilors were promoted in Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. With the delimitation of new wards in Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, there has been an increase in the number of Congress councilors as compared to 2010 due to the panel of 4 corporators. Eleven councilors of BJP were less elected. In the 2010 election, the Congress had 37 councillors. Which increased to 49. In 2015, the BJP’s 151 councilors fell to 142.

Hindutva continues

In urban areas of Gujarat, the Congress was driven away by Hindu voters after the 2002 Godhra riots. At the end of 12 years, the wave of Hindutva came to an end in 2015. It was strongly opposed in the metropolitan cities of Surat, Rajkot, Ahmedabad. Now despite the issues troubling the people, BJP has got votes again in 2021.

Even after the Shankersinh Vaghela rebellion, the Congress had more elected representatives than the BJP in Gujarat. In 2010, the BJP had 2460 representatives out of a total of 4778 in all local bodies. In 2015 it came down to 1718. Whereas Congress increased from 1428 to 2102.

In Taluka Panchayat, BJP got 52.27 percent votes with 3351 seats and Congress got 38.82 percent votes with 1252 seats. In this way Aam Aadmi Party has got 31 seats. There were a total of 4771 seats.
