  • Gujarat Assemby polls Amit Shah kicks off 'Gujarat Gaurav Yatra' from Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth place Karamsad

The campaign will be held in two tours, one led by the state's deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel while the other will be led by Gujarat BJP president Jitubhai Vaghani. The assembly elections in Gujarat will be conducted in December, so there's just around 2 months left to complete the campaigning. "We are seeking an answer from you (the Congress) for injustices that the three generations of your rule did to us", the BJP president was quoted by PTI.

Mr. Shah cited instances of "injustice", like Jawaharlal Nehru "sidelining" Sardar Patel, and Morarji Desai being denied the prime ministerial post during Indira Gandhi's regime.

"If Rahul dreams about Gujarat then he should visit Porbandar, not Italy for fulfilling those dreams".

BJP president Amit Shah took on the Congress party and accused them for inflicting "injustice" on Gujarat, generation after generation. "The BJP today launches Gujarat Gaurav Yatra from the same land of Sardar Patel from where he raised the voice of the farmers and started the work to unify the country", Amit Shah said. "This model is Gujarat's pride", he said.

McCain doesn't back GOP health care bill, drawing Trump ire
McCain's rejection of the Graham-Cassidy proposal effectively ends the party's chances at repealing Obamacare - for now. Republican Senate leadership can only afford to lose two votes to pass Graham-Cassidy before 30 September.

The "Sonia-Manmohan Singh" government, during the UPA's 10-year rule, did "great" injustice to Gujarat by holding up the Narmada dam project, he alleged. "I want to remind them that the Modi government approved an AIIMS for Gujarat, an global airport for Rajkot, approval to raise the height of the Narmada dam and allocation of homes to six lakh urban poor", Mr Shah said, adding that the Congress vice president seemed to have missed all this. Shah, who has been camped in Gujarat since September 26, arrived in Gandhinagar this evening after flagging off the party's "Gujarat Gaurav Yatra" at Karamsad in Anand district earlier today.

The poll campaign has been named "Gujarat Gaurav Yatra" and it seeks to highlight the various achievements of the BJP government in the state for the last 20 years.

Travelling through various parts of the states, both the legs will culminate on October 16 in the presence of Prime Minister Modi.
