Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who has been frequently campaigning in the state to give final touches to the party’s poll strategy, may hold over 30 public meetings for the elections scheduled for December 1 and 5, as per a report by news agency PTI.
Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari are also set to campaign intensively in Gujarat.
It is to be noted that this is Modi’s second visit to his home state after the announcement of the Gujarat Assembly poll schedule. During his last visit on November 6, PM Modi had addressed a rally at Kaprada in Valsad district and also attended a mass marriage event in Bhavnagar.
As per reports, PM Modi will visit Somnath Temple and then address four rallies in the Saurashtra region on Sunday. Veraval, Dhorarji, Amreli and Botad have been finalised as the venues for his four upcoming poll rallies.
On Monday, PM Modi will hold three rallies in Surendranagar, Bharuch and Navsari.
While Bharuch was the constituency of former Congress leader Ahmed Patel, the BJP state chief CR Paatil, who hails from Navsari, has been winning his Lok Sabha seat with one of the top margins across the country.
