Gujarat: PM Narendra Modi ups ante, to address 3 rallies today
With less than a week to go for Lok Sabha elections in Gujarat, the campaigning is entering its final phase. To that end, on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to address three rallies in his home state, while Congress president Rahul Gandhi will be in Gujarat over the next two days.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address public meetings in Sabarkantha, Surendranagar, and Anand on April 17, and in Amreli on April 18," the state BJP said in a release.
Incidentally, all four Lok Sabha seats where Modi is slated to address the rallies are among the 6-7 seats that the Congress expects to win. A senior BJP leader said that they expect the PM's rallies to tilt the balance in these seats in favour of the party and enable it to repeat its 2014 sweep, when it won all 26 LS seats in the state.
