The party also claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was on a "shopping spree" to buy political support through money and muscle power.

The PM will again visit Gujarat on November 29 and address four public meetings in Saurashtra at Morbi, Somnath, Bhavnagar and in South Gujarat at Navsari.

The rallies would cover Kutch-Saurashtra and South Gujarat regions, that will go to the polls in the first phase on December 9. However, BJP is still confident that Modi's charisma is not lost yet and his magic will surely get the victory in BJP's pocket.

Modi will start his Gujarat election campaign with a rally in Bhuj on 27 November, followed by public meetings in Jasdan town of Rajkot, Dhari in Amreli and Kamrej in Surat district on the same day, Gujarat BJP incharge Bhupender Yadav said in Ahmedabad on Thursday. For the second and last phase of polling (December 14) in the remaining 93 constituencies of North and Central Gujarat, nominations will begin on November 27 and the last date of withdrawal is November 30.

The timing of the airing of Mann ki Baat, nearly two weeks ahead of the polls, seems like a strategic move to campaign using a veil. Party workers will interact with gathered people at the polling booth region and project the party's themes and the development works carried out by the BJP over the years. Along with them, BJP national President Amit Shah, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, state BJP president Jitu Vaghani, former Chief Minister Anandiben Patel and national Vice President Purshottam Rupala will address gatherings.

The PM is scheduled to address his monthly radio programme 'Mann ki Baat, ' on November 26.

Bhupendra Yadav in his statement to the press informed that "Each rally has been organized so that people from five to six surrounding constituencies can participate".
