GANDHINAGAR: The first phase of election to the Gujarat legislative assembly will begin tomorrow (December 1) with 89 constituencies going to the polls. The election campaign wound up yesterday. Voting for the rest 93 seats will be on December 5. The election campaign of ruling BJP and opposition Congress was in full swing with heavy loads of controversies and enthusiasm.

The latest controversy was the speech of Congress President, Mallikarjun Kharge, when he compared Narendra Modi with Ravana. He said that from panchayat to parliament elections, Modi says to vote with his face in mind. How many faces does Modi have like Ravana? This was Kharge’s remarks.

Meanwhile, Union Minister, Amit Shah, and UP Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath, who came to campaign for the candidates in the second phase of election, created waves across the state.
