Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi began his two-day Gujarat tour on Thursday by visiting Mahatma Gandhi's Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad.

 
Rahul spent almost half-an-hour in the ashram, from where the Mahatma had spearheaded the non-violent freedom movement of the country till he left for Dandi yatra.
 
"It's always an honour for me to come to the ashram. I am a follower of Gandhi and his ideas. Thank you," Rahul wrote in the visitor's book at the ashram.
 
Rahul will interact with party office-bearers in Ahmedabad and Rajkot during his visit to the state, guiding them on how to take on the BJP led by Narendra Modi on its home turf in the next general elections.
