The Congress said that the BJP is trying to use all means to divert the attention from the real issues on the ground.

In an interesting development, posters projecting senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel as next chief minister of Gujarat, in case Congress wins upcoming Assembly elections, have appeared in Surat.

Mr Patel, who is Congress president Sonia Gandhi' political advisor, stressed that he was never a candidate for the chief minister's post and "never will be".

Campaigning for the first phase of Gujarat Assembly polls is being seen as a litmus test for both ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Opposition Congress. "All of you go to safe places, do not rely on administration as they are busy serving the 'Saheb'". Addressing an election rally at Surat in poll-bound Gujarat, Mr Modi said, some tough decisions had to be taken after the NDA government came to power but people have trusted his decisions.

The posters and banners with Congress leader Ahmed Patel and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi's pictures were pasted near the mosque of Shalimar Textile Market on Ring Road, Udhna Darwaja Morcha Masjid and close to the district collectorate on Athwa Road in the city.

His tweet read, "Cyclone Ockhi is expected to make landfall in Gujarat".
