The election rallies, which were all cancelled due to the cyclonic storms in Gujarat on Tuesday have been resumed by the political parties as the warnings have been withdrawn.
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the first one to restart the rallies and has already addressed a rally in Dhanduka and will conduct rallies in Dahod and Netrang.
Earlier in the day, PM Modi tweeted his plan saying;
Will be in Gujarat today, where I would address rallies in Dhandhuka, Dahod and Netrang. @BJP4Gujarat

During a rally in Dhanduka, PM Modi raked-up the issue of Ram temple in Ayodhya and targeted Congress leader Kapil Sibal, who is one of the litigant party in the Supreme Court and is representing the Sunni Waqf Board in the Ayodhya case.
Earlier, Kapil Sibal had petitioned in the Supreme Court for deferring the case till the 2019 Lok Sabha Polls 2019 are completed.
The Prime Minister questioned the Congress leader, over the connection made by him between the Ayodhya issue and the Lok Sabha elections, and asked him, why did he request the Supreme Court to postpone the matter till the 2019 Lok Sabha election are over.
In the rally, Narendra Modi said, “How can he say don’t bring a solution to the Ayodhya issue till the next Lok Sabha Elections? How are Lok Sabha elections related to the Ayodhya settlement issue?” In a Tweet, posted by Bharatiya Janata Party’s official Twitter handle, PM Modi said;
Congress MP Kapil Sibal argued in SC yesterday to postpone the hearing on Shri Ram Mandir in Ayodhya till 2019. Why does he have to link Ram Mandir with elections? Is such thinking proper? Congress should answer : PM @narendramodi

The PM also targeted the Congress by blaming the Nehru-Gandhi family for sidelining Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar and Sardar Patel. He told the audience that it was difficult for Dr Ambedkar to join the Constituent Assembly till Pandit Nehru had complete control over the Congress Party.
PM Modi also fired a salvo at Rahul Gandhi, questioning him to make his stand clear on the Ram Mandir issue.
In Dahod, the PM yet again continued his tirade on the Nehru-Gandhi family for encouraging only family members to lead the party, thus ignoring popular view and treating the party and the nation as their personal business.
PM Modi further said, unlike the Congress, the 125 crore people of the nation are all our family members and we are concerned for the well being of all.
