Rahul mocks PM Modi, BJP over Gujarat manifesto delay

Caste alliances

Prominent candidates in the fray include Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), who is contesting from Rajkot (West), along with Congress' Shaktisinh Gohil and Paresh Dhanani.

Taking the Gujarat poll campaign to a new low, Congress politician and writer Salman Nizami raised question on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's family background only to be countered by PM himself on Saturday.

The election is viewed as a prestige battle for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a litmus test for the leadership of soon-to-be Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

Chief Electoral Officer for Gujarat B B Swain said that though voting would end at 5 pm, those standing in queue outside polling booths before the process ends, would be given a chance to cast their votes.

Modi urged voters to turnout in large numbers.

The pre poll survey has been conducted by Platform for Election Analysis and Community Studies (PEACS), a popular Exit Poll organization that in the past has predicted nearly every election results accurately. The party is confident that Aiyar's "loose tongue" has given them the much-needed weapon that would see a groundswell of support for the BJP candidates.

The Gandhi scion also attacked Modi for not answering any of the 10 questions that he had put up daily ahead of the Gujarat polls and wondered why the issue of development didn't find any space in his poll speeches.

He said that Congress may even get 110 seats.

The vote, a second round of which will be held on December 14, is seen as crucial for Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of national elections scheduled for 2019. Counting of votes and the results would be announced together on December 18.
