NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other senior BJP leaders are expected to hold several road shows and public rallies in Gujarat as the party looks to rev up its election campaign to retain power in the state.
Modi is likely to hold a road show in Vapi in Gujarat on November 19 and other senior leaders, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah, will also spearhead the mass contact programme in different parts of the state, party leaders said.
After arriving in his home state on November 19, the prime minister is expected to hold public meetings across the state in the next two days.
Shah, who has been frequently camping in the state to give final touches to the party’s poll strategy and campaign, may hold over 30 public meetings for the elections scheduled for December 1 and 5, party sources said.
Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari will also campaign intensively, they said.
The BJP has won assembly polls in the state for six consecutive times since 1995 and is pulling out all the stops to keep its winning streak uninterrupted in the traditionally bipolar poll involving the Congress, which has spiced up this time by the entry of the Aam Aadmi Party.
