Gandhinagar: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will visit Gujarat on Friday and Saturday to address election rallies, his fifth visit after Assembly polls were announced in the state.

Gandhi will arrive on Friday morning at Mahatma Gandhi's birthplace Porbandar and address a public rally, focusing on issues of the fishing community.

Thereafter, he will visit Ahmedabad's Dalit Shakti Kendra where he will be presented a mammoth Indian flag made by Dalit workers which activists say the Chief Minister's Office and other officials refused to accept.
