"At the party's state headquarters, the PM held a meeting with key party leaders, including Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel, state BJP president C R Paatil and Minister of State for Home Harsh Sanghavi," party leader Anil Patel told reporters. The prime minister's visit to the party office and meeting was not part of his official schedule. Before leaving the office, PM Modi held an informal talk with the staff of 'Shree Kamalam' and some of his old colleagues by sitting on a bench in the premises, Patel added.

"The PM talked with all of them in a completely informal manner and inquired about the well-being of their families too. He also asked the staffers and workers to sit with him. Gujarat CM, Paatil and Sanghavi were also part of this informal meeting," he said.

PM Modi, who arrived in Gujarat on Saturday for the party's election campaign, addressed four rallies in the key Saurashtra region at Veraval, Dhoraji, Amreli, and Botad on Sunday. The BJP-ruled Gujarat will vote in two phases on December 1 and 5.

The counting of votes will be taken up on December 8.
