Gujarat Polls: PM Modi addresses rally in Dhandhuka

Speaking at the day's first rally in Dhandhuka, PM Modi invoked Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. On a lighter note, PM Modi said that the Congress' claim to victory will fizzle out just like the Cyclone Okhai has.

With 37.5 million followers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has retained the number one spot on the 2017 list of Most Followed Indians on Twitter. "BJP in Gujarat has ended the 'Tanker Raj.' Tanker business was firmly in the hands of Congress leaders and their families", Modi added.

Modi said the Centre did not hesitate to take action after 19 Indian soldiers were killed in Uri attacks a year ago, referring to Indian Army's "surgical strikes to neutralise the launch pads of terrorism in Pakistan occupied Kashmir". "Our Government worked for tribal welfare, ensured better education and healthcare", the Prime Minister said. "Elections come later humanity comes first", said Prime Minister Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as the star campaigner of BJP, is once again back in his hometown, ahead of the first phase of polls due on 9 December. "People told me not to speak on the matter else there will be losses in elections", he said.

During the rally, Narendra Modi also brought up the Ayodhya issue underlining the recent appeals made by Kapil Sibal on 5 Dec in the Supreme Court. Why does he have to link a Ram Mandir with elections.

"Someone who served at a high position in our Air Force has said that after 26/11 they went to the then PM with a plan for surgical strikes".

PM Modi's Surat rally, which was earlier scheduled for Wednesday, has been postponed by a day. BJP President Amit Shah's poll rallies scheduled in Rajula town of Amreli and Mahuva and Shihor of Bhavnagar district were cancelled.

In wake of the Cyclone Ockhi, forwarding towards the Gujarat coast, the political parties were forced to cancel their rallies and roadshows, including those by BJP chief Amit Shah and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
