Shah was on a two-day visit to Gujarat to inaugurate several programmes related to health infrastructure in the State.
Top sources said that Union HM discussed various agitations going on in Gandhinagar. He also asked the state president to strengthen the booth and page committee. The selection of candidates and some disputes amongst the party leaders were also discussed in the meeting.
Of late, AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia are visiting Gujarat with their guarantee schemes. The meeting at Kamalam was also to decide the message and line of communication that the BJP should follow while reaching out to the public. Roadshows, election-related events, and activities to attract varied segments of voters–senior citizens, women, first-time voters etc were also decided.
