Narendra Modi v/s Rahul Gandhi: Gujarat war shakes Bhuj


Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi
Bhuj (Gujarat), Dec 15: Eleven years after the massive earthquake in Bhuj, the city will experience another jolt on Saturday, Dec 15 when Rahul Gandhi will address a rally to woo the voters ahead of the second phase of polling in Gujarat.

The young Gandhi family scion is expected to go all out for the last day of election campaign. Meanwhile, one of the toughest contenders Narendra Modi, who aims to become the Chief Minister for the third consecutive time, will also hold campaign in five different districts in the state on the same day.

Rahul earlier on Dec 11 had visited Gujarat for the first time when he claimed that Modi's 'Gujarat Shining' theory was promoted by marketing people, when the state lacks employment and water.

His mother Sonia Gandhi too later hurled stern criticism at Modi. The Congress President held a rally in the state on Friday. She accused Modi government of misusing the central fund to benefit some businessman leaving the common man in the lurch.

However, snubbing all his critics, the BJP icon held 3D campaign for the last time on Friday. He spoke to people simultaneously across 53 places through 3D projection technology.

The second phase of poll will be held on Monday, Dec 17. After huge turnout in the first phase, it is expected that this time too people of the state will arrive at the poll booth to caste their votes.

The Election Commission on Friday informed that the first phase of the 12th Gujarat assembly elections witnessed a record 70.75 per cent voting turnout in the 87 assembly constituencies spread across seven districts in Saurashtra and South Gujarat and four seats in Western Ahmedabad.
