Ahead of the election in Gujarat next week, Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot continued his attacks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, mocking him for multiple visits to a state the BJP has controlled for nearly 30 years. Speaking in Gujarat's Dediapada, the Congress leader declared the prime minister had campaigned on every street in the state.

"The situation arose as the Bharatiya Janata Party did not work for the state. No enquiry was conducted in the Morbi incident where 135 people died," Gehlot was quoted by news agency ANI, adding that Gujarat's voting for Congress would force the BJP to introspect.

On Sunday too Gehlot had questioned Modi's repeated visits to Gujarat, claiming knowledge of nearly 30-35 rebel leaders inside the BJP's state unit.

"What is the need for PM Modi to visit Gujarat repeatedly when his name is enough? It is because the BJP is scared now. I have heard that there are nearly 30-35 rebels inside the BJP. Such is the extent of anger inside the party," Gehlot said at an election rally in Vadodara.

He also claimed there was a 'massive anti-incumbency' in Gujarat.

Last week Gehlot said the election result in Gujarat would be a surprise given the number of visits both Modi and union home minister Amit Shah had made to their home state.

Gujarat will vote in two phases - December 1 and 5. Counting of votes will take place on December 8, along with those from Himachal Pradesh, another BJP-ruled state.
