Gujarat Elections 2017 | Voting Underway In Gujarat, PM Urges For "Record Turnout"
Gujarat is voting today in 89 of its 182 constituencies in the first of two phases of assembly elections. The rest of the state will vote on Thursday next. Kutch, Saurashtra and south Gujarat are voting today after a bitter and personal campaign between the Congress and the BJP. For the last two days, suspended Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar's "neech" slur against Prime Minister Narendra Modi has dominated the Gujarat campaign. PM Modi and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, in tweets this morning, urged people to come out and vote in large numbers. Results will be announced on December 18.
