Earlier, from Ahmedabad, Gandhi went to Unjha town where he offered prayers at the temple of Goddess Umiya.

Congress sources said the party aims to woo the Patidar (Patel) community which has been agitating for reservation in educational institutions and government jobs.

The Patels have been the traditional vote bank of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in Gujarat but turned against it during the crucial elections to local self-government bodies.
