Gujarat polls: As campaign ends, Narendra Modi says 'BJP victory guarantees state's bright future'

As the campaigning for the Gujarat Assembly elections comes to an end, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday in a series of tweets said that he is 'devoting his life to the betterment of the people of Gujarat and India' and urged the people 'to vote for the BJP in record numbers'.

The prime minister also said that the victory of BJP in Gujarat is a guarantee for a bright future.

The prime minister said that he got the honour of travelling across Gujarat to seek the blessings of the people after almost three-and-a-half years. He further said that the affection he received in Gujarat is unparalleled in his 40 years of public life and has motivated him to devote all his life to India's development.

He also called upon the people of Gujarat to vote in record numbers on 14 December, the second phase of the Gujarat elections, and ensure that BJP wins in every polling booth in the state.

Modi also expressed pain over the 'lies that BJP's worthy opponents have spread' and said that the people of Gujarat will 'give a fitting reply to the negativity and lies of the Opposition'. The prime minister also said that the victory of BJP is a guarantee for a bright future.

Modi said with the Centre and the Gujarat government working together, the strength will increase and together they will take Gujarat to new heights.
