Modi visit to set tone for Gu­jarat poll drive

Mint ST - - THE BRIEFING -

Ahmedabad: Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi will visit his home state Gu­jarat at least twice in Septem­ber with plans to high­light am­bi­tious de­vel­op­ment projects that some hope will gal­va­nize the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), still smart­ing from a re­cent high-stakes elec­tion loss to the Congress, ahead of assem­bly elec­tions. A string of planned events, in­clud­ing lay­ing the grounds for the am­bi­tious ‘bullet train’ and ded­i­cat­ing the Sar­dar Sarovar Dam to the na­tion, are likely to set tone for the BJP’S cam­paign for polls due this year.
