This was Mr Gandhi’s first election rally in poll-bound Gujarat, where he was addressing a gathe ring of tribals at Mahuva in Surat district.

He called the tribals the first owners of the country and claimed the BJP was working to take away their rights.

“They call you ‘vanvasi’. They do not say you are the first owners of India, but that you live in the jungle. Do you see the difference? It means they do not want you to live in cities, they do not want that your children become engineers, doctors, learn to fly planes, speak English,” he said.

Gujarat is today witnessing high voltage campaigning ahead of Assembly elections scheduled for next month, as all top leaders of the top three parties staking claim to power are addressing several rallies across the state.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing three back-to-back ‘Vijay Sankalp Sammelan’ rallies of his party BJP, Union Home Minister Amit Shah is holding four public meetings, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who is also a BJP’s star campaigner for the Gujarat elections, will also address a public meeting today.

The meeting was held at the BJP’s state headquarters ‘Shree Kamalam’ in Gandhinagar. Modi reached the party office around 6.30 pm after finishing his day-long campaign in Saurashtra region that will go to polls in the first phase on December 1.

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party Convenor Arvind Kejriwal will also participate in road shows and address public meetings.
