This weekend, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will travel to Gujarat, a state that is slated to have elections, and he is scheduled to take part in at least eight events that span the state from Saurashtra to Surat.
The most notable event of PM Modi’s journey is his November 20 visit to the renowned Somnath Temple. The Somnath Temple Trust is led by the Prime Minister as its chairman.
After arriving in Gujarat on November 19 in the evening, the prime minister will speak at a rally in Valsad.
He will speak at four rallies in the Saurashtra area on November 20, following a visit to the Somnath Temple. Veraval, Dhorarji, Amreli, and Botad have finalized their venues.
By the way, in the most recent assembly elections, the BJP failed to win even one seat in these Saurashtra assembly districts. Despite winning the state elections, the BJP was unable to break through this stronghold of Congress supporters.
On Day 3, in Surendranagar, Bharuch, and Navsari, PM Modi will hold three rallies.
While the old Congress big man Ahmed Patel had represented Bharuch, the BJP state president CR Patil, who is from Navsari, has been winning this Lok Sabha seat with enormous margins.
Furthermore, Rahul Gandhi, a Lok Sabha member of the Congress, is expected to visit Navsari on November 21, the same day that PM Modi is expected to visit.
During his visit, Gujarat-born Prime Minister Modi is expected to hold a private meeting with state officials in order to advance the party in the western state.
The BJP has held sway in Gujarat for the past 27 years, with Narendra Modi serving as the state’s chief minister the longest.
The party, led this time around by Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, and CR Patil, hopes to secure more than 140 seats.
The state has always been a BJP stronghold, and the party is optimistic about returning and forming the government for a seventh term.
Gujarat, which has 182 assembly districts, will hold elections on December 1 and 5 in two phases. On December 8, which is also the day when Himachal Pradesh announces its results, the votes will be counted.
