The 50-kilometer-long mega-show would begin in Naroda Gam and end at Gandhinagar South constituency. For the second round of the Gujarat assembly election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi performed a three-hour massive roadshow in Ahmedabad that covered 16 assembly districts. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) claims that the huge event will span a distance of more than 50 kilometres, beginning at the Naroda Gam and terminating at the Gandhinagar South constituency. The prime minister’s roadshow got underway, and PM Modi is expected to stop at at least 35 memorials along the way, including those of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, and Pandit Dindayal Upadhyay. In the meantime, the first round of voting in the Gujarat Assembly election came to a close on Thursday amidst strict security measures.
In 89 constituencies spanning across 19 districts in Kutch, Saurashtra, and South Gujarat, voting took place.
The state has historically been a BJP stronghold, and the party has set its eyes on winning a seventh term in office. From 2001 until 2014, Modi served as Gujarat’s chief minister for the longest period of time.
The Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which has chosen Isudan Gadhvi as its candidate for chief minister, will present the BJP with a formidable electoral challenge.
