Cam­paign for first phase ends

The Hindu - - FRONT PAGE - Spe­cial cor­re­spon­dent

Cam­paign­ing for the first phase of the Gu­jarat Assem­bly elec­tions ended on Thurs­day, 48 hours be­fore the vot­ing on De­cem­ber 9 in 89 seats — out of 182 — span­ning the cru­cial Saurash­tra and south Gu­jarat re­gions.

In Saurash­tra, there are a dozen con­stituen­cies where the im­pact of the Pati­dar ag­i­ta­tion for quota is likely to be felt as their leader Hardik Patel has been tour­ing the re­gions ex­ten­sively to mo­bilise pub­lic opin­ion against the rul­ing BJP.
