"I listened to Modi ji's speech yesterday. Sixty per cent of his speech was on the Congress and me. This election is not about Congress or BJP but about the future of Gujarat and its people," says Rahul Gandhi in Anjar, Kutch.

Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat today for election rallies

Tuesday's tour will be Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's seventh visit to poll-bound Gujarat since September. The 47-year-old leader -- who filed his nomination for the Congress president's post on Monday -- will address a public meeting at the Town Hall Ground in Anjar in Kutch district, followed by another in Morbi district.

Gandhi will address two public meetings at Jinn Mill Ground at Dhrangadhra and MB Shah College Ground at Wadhwan in Surendranagar district.

During Gandhi's last visit to the state, a major controversy broke out over his visit to the Somnath temple, as the Bharatiya Janata Party questioned his faith. The Congress hit back and accused the BJP of playing "dirty politics" and maintained he was a "devout Hindu".
