Thirty-four-year old Ketan Inamdar emerged as the only Independent candidate to win. He was pitted against two MLAs, Upendrasinh Gohil from and BJP's Khumansinh Chauhan, from Vadodara's Savli constituency.
Inamdar was associated with BJP and was a frontrunner for ticket from the party, which he was denied at the last moment.
Asked if he would join BJP again, he said his priority was to serve the public of Savli that has helped him win. "This is the victory of the youth, and of all those who have reposed faith in me," he said.
