"Though we have done well in municipal corporations and municipalities, it is also a fact that the results in district and taluka panchayat bodies are not up to the expectations," Patel admitted while addressing the party workers outside BJP office in Khanpur area here.
"We have been doing several developmental works across Gujarat. We have also undertaken an exercise to strengthen the party organisation. Still we have to now analyse what went wrong. We will find out and address these problems," she said.
The Chief Minister received a grand welcome at Khanpur office as the BJP has retained the six municipal corporations: Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar, Surat, Jamnagar, Vadodara and Rajkot. The Chief Minister, though, expressed some disappointment for not surpassing the previous tally of 151 at the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation.
"We have won in all the six corporations with a thumping majority....of the 56 municipalities we have captured 40, while eight went to Congress. People used to say that BJP will get only 80 to 90 seats in AMC (of the total 192), but we have captured 142," Patel said.
