On Thursday, PM Modi held a roadshow in Rajkot, theÂ main city of the Saurashtra region, where he was greeted by thousands of people.
This was the second roadshow of Modi in poll-bound Gujarat, where elections are due by the year-end. He had held a similar programme in Surat in April, virtually launching the poll campaign of the BJP, which is in power in the state for more than two decades now.
Rajkot has a special place in Modiâ€™s political career. He was elected to the Assembly from the Rajkot-II seat after being appointed the chief minister of Gujarat in 2001. He continued to occupy the post till May 2014, when he became the prime minister and moved to New Delhi.
The roadshow ended at the airport after almost an hour. The city was specially decorated for the high-profile event.
