Ahmedabad: Prime Minister Narendra Modi waited in queue to vote at booth 115 at the Nishan High School in Ahmedabad’s Ranip locality, and then walked down the road holding up his inked finger as a big crowd gathered to greet him roared.
The PM had urged people to vote in large numbers in the second and final phase of the assembly elections. The Prime Minister is the face of the BJP’s campaign in his home state in what is seen as a contest between him and Rahul Gandhi, who is set to be Congress president.
PM Modi has pitched the Gujarat battle as one between “vikas (development)” and “vanshwaad (dynasty),” in an attack on Rahul Gandhi, who is set to take over from his mother Sonia Gandhi as Congress president on Saturday, two days before votes are counted. Votes will be counted on Monday, December 18.
