Gujarat Elections 2017: PM Modi queues up to vote in Ahmedabad

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah on Tuesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for breaching the security protocol by travelling in a single engine seaplane.

Kasuri claimed PM Modi must have made the remarks hoping to get votes.

The PM then took a ride in his bullet-proof SUV showing his inked finger to the crowd gathered on the street before leaving from the venue.

The Prime Minister then walked amid the crowd outside before getting into his vehicle and leaving.

BJP chief Amit Shah hit back at the former prime minister and asked the "angry" Congress veteran why he was silent when a "monumental loot" took place during his tenure at the Centre.

Shortly after Singh and Modi greeted each other at an event to pay homage to the martyrs of the 2001 Parliament attack, the acrimony simmering during the campaigning for the high-stakes elections in the Prime Minister's home state was out in the open again.

"Gujarat nu bhalukaro, (I pray to God for Gujarat's well-being)", she said at the polling station.

The Election Commission yesterday night issued a show cause notice to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for "prima facie" violating the provisions of the election law and the model code by giving interviews to TV channels in Gujarat where the final phase of polls is due today. "I request all those voting today to vote in record numbers and enrich this festival of democracy", PM Modi tweeted. Around 2.22 crore people are eligible to exercise their franchise in polling for 93 seats - 61 in central Gujarat and 32 in north Gujarat.

Elections are being held in Banaskantha, Patan, Sabarkantha, Mehsana, Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad, Aravalli, Mahisagar, Panchmahal, Dahod, Kheda, Anand, Vadodara and Chhota Udepur districts from 8 am to 5 pm.
