Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be campaigning in Gujarat on November 22. He will visit Gujarat during a break from Congress party’s ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Elections are scheduled to be held in Gujarat in two phases, on December 1 and 5. Votes will be counted on December 8.
The former Congress president has been facing criticism from BJP for not having campaigned in Himachal Pradesh, where Assembly elections were held yesterday.
With elections in Himachal now over, Congress is focusing on Gujarat. Over the next few weeks, several campaign rallies by prominent party leaders are scheduled in the poll-bound state.
Meanwhile, Congress has released its sixth list of candidates for Gujarat polls. With the release of this latest list, the party has now declared candidates for 142 seats in the state.
Congress had announced its first list on November 4, in which 43 candidates were named. The second list consisting of 46 candidates was announced on November 10. A list of seven candidates was released on Friday. However, one was a replacement for a candidate named earlier.
Opposition Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are looking to end the BJP’s 27-year rule in Gujarat.
