On his visit to Rajkot, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said Gujarat is moving ahead with development and that he likes "coming to Gujarat".

He added that Gujarat development has happened due to Prime Minister Modi's magic.

"When we work in Chhattisgarh, we consider the Gujarat Model as our inspiration," Chief Minister Singh added.

Raman Singh also said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought "so much honour to Gujarat and the country" adding that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is asking to vote for development and not on the basis of caste.

"I hope that people of Gujarat and Rajkot are wise and will vote for BJP," he said.

On allegations that there is a mood of anti-incumbency in Gujarat and that is the reason of BJP calling for Union Ministers and other important leaders for campaigning in Gujarat.

The elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 9 and 14. (ANI)
