PM Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah arrived in Gujarat on a two-day visit. The PM addressed his first rally on Sunday after the poll victory. He was welcomed by a huge crowd at the rally venue in Ahmedabad.

The celebrations in the prime minister’s home state, which has voted for the BJP in all 26 Lok Sabha seats, were muted due to the Surat fire tragedy in which 22 students were killed.
