With prayers at Ambaji Temple, PM Modi ends Gujarat campaign

SNS | New Delhi |

Prime Minister Narendra Modi ended his hectic campaigning for the Gujarat polls on Tuesday by offering prayers at the famous Ambaji Temple in Mehsana.

In what was a clear display of the Gujarat model of development, on the last day of campaigning, Modi took off in a seaplane from the Sabarmati Riverfront in Ahmedabad and landed at Dharoi Dam, about 180 km away, from where he headed to the temple.

“My campaign journey in Gujarat, which began with the blessings of Ashapura Mata, ended today with the blessings Maa Amba. Experienced tremendous spiritual bliss and satisfaction of Karma Yog,” he tweeted.

“Thanks to the blessings of Amba Maa and the Janta Darshan, which is akin to Ishwar Darshan, across Gujarat, I derive renewed strength to work for India. My determination to work towards India’s transformation got fresh vigour,” he said in another tweet.

The seaplane ride was Plan B after the PM’s roadshow in Ahmedabad on Tuesday was cancelled due to security concerns. He returned by the same sea-plane.

Many have termed the plane ride a masterstroke of PM Modi to showcase the development that has taken place under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the last 22 years.

Tuesday is the last day for campaigning for the elections and all the political campaigning will halt at 5 pm.

Door-to-door campaigning will be allowed wearing the party symbol on caps and T-shirts.

The second phase polls on Thursday will see around two crore voters decide the fate of 1,828 candidates fighting for 93 assembly seats.
