The 7th Gujarat Legislative Assembly election was held in 1985.[1][2][3] The incumbent Indian National Congress (INC) obtained majority with an increase in the vote share and number of seats which was a record in terms of number of seats. INC won 149 seats out of total 182 seats. Janata Party (JP) won only 14 seats, showcasing dominance of INC at that time. But, in 1985, Gujarat faced riots in the cities of Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar due to reservation bill.
