Look at Purushottam Khandelwal. It's exceptional performance by him. Who can think of a second Ahmedabad candidate getting 2650 votes. So kudos, great work and brilliantly done. It proves acceptability across the board, the connect with common member, that's all. You won the hearts, best wishes next time.
Here is the scenario where Purushottam can win and we can get two Ahmedabad seats
- Tarun Ghia who is 230 votes below Purushottam, doesn't get enough second preference votes from Rajkumar Adukia to cover this gap. Mind you, Rajkumar will also give votes to Purushottam, but it will give more votes to Tarun. How much more is the game.
- If Rajkumar gives good votes to Shrinivas too and make a scene that Tarun is below Shrnivas and he becomes the next elimination, then Ahmedabad gets secons seat, and this seems most unlikely.
- If Shrinivas is next elimination, then Mangesh will shoot up and reach above Purushottam, Durgesh Kabra and Tarun will also be above Purushottam and that will be end game and death knell for the Ahmedabad second seat hopes.
- As long as Tarun is below Purushottam, Gujarat stands a chance to make a history with third Central council seat, which is the only scenario. Touch wood.
