Ahmedabad: Once again, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting his home state Gujarat today. Indications are that he is expected to address a gathering of BJP workers at a village near Gandhinagar.
Narendra Modi has been visiting his home state almost every week and is likely to come back for more rallies. The Election Commission recently announced the election dates for Himachal Pradesh and stopped short of doing so for Gujarat, which is due for Assembly elections around the same time by the end of this year.
Once the dates are announced, political parties and the government are not allowed to announce sops and schemes to woo voters under the Model Code of Conduct.
According to the party leaders, PM Modi will address the ‘Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan’ being organised by the state BJP to celebrate the conclusion of the saffron party’s ‘Gujarat Gaurav Yatra’ (march for Gujarat’s honour), State BJP chief Jitu Vaghani said.
“I bow to the people of Gujarat for blessing BJP for decades. We will always fulfil the dreams of every Gujarati with full strength & vigour,” Modi tweeted on Sunday.
Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, BJP national president Amit Shah and many other leaders of the party would be present.
Last week, Modi had visited Gujarat to inaugurate and lay foundation stones of various projects in Rajkot, Vadnagar, Gandhinagar and Bharuch.
