Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is on a visit to the poll-bound state today launched the new election slogan in Gujarati – ‘I have made this Gujarat’. Addressing his first election rally in his home state after the announcement of poll dates, Modi said Aa Gujarat, mai bnavyu chhe and also made people chant it several times during his 25-minute-long speech.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Valsad “We’ve been working continuously for the development of Gujarat. Every Gujarati is full of self-confidence, which is why when Gujaratis speak, a sound emanates from within them – they have created this Gujarat,”
“Those divisive forces that have indulged in spreading hatred, those who have tried to defame and insult Gujarat have been swept out of Gujarat. In this election also they will meet the same fate. Sitting in Delhi, I am getting the inputs that BJP will win with a record margin this time in Gujarat. I have come here to beat my past records (of BJP’s victory margin). I have told the Gujarat BJP that I am ready to give as much time as possible to it,” he added.
Elections will be held in Gujarat in two phases on December 1 and 5. The counting of votes will be taken up on December 8.The poll contest will be triangular with the Congress, the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party going all out to woo voters.
In the 2017 elections, the BJP had won 99 seats and the Congress 77 of the total 182 seats.
