On the last day of campaigning in poll-bound Gujarat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the concerns of BJP’s scheduled caste (SC) and scheduled tribe (ST) members in the state, inaugurate Dr. Ambedkar International Centre and finally hold a rally in Surat, he said on Thursday.
In a tweet Modi said: “At 10 AM today, will interact with
@BJP4Gujarat SC, ST Morcha Karyakartas and Karyakartas belonging to coastal areas of Gujarat. At 11 AM will inaugurate the Dr. Ambedkar International Centre and will then go to Surat, where I will address a rally.”

The PM will connect with the divisional heads of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) SC and ST units on mobile phones through the “audio bridge” technology.
About 10,000 workers of the party would directly attend PM Modi’s call, the BJP said in a statement on Wednesday.
He will then inaugurate the BR Ambedkar International Centre in the national capital which he said would encourage research and original thinking among the youth.
The Prime Minister will then fly to Surat to hold a public rally and conclude his campaigning.
The Surat rally was scheduled to take place on Wednesday but had to be postponed due to cyclone Ockhi. With the first phase of polling to take place on Saturday, the rally will conclude Modi’s campaigning in Gujarat.
On Wednesday, PM Modi addressed three rallies in the state – Dhandhuka, Dahod and Netrang.
The 182-member Gujarat Assembly will go to the polls in two phases on December 9 and 14. The results will be declared on December 18.
